Free speech = Speaking freely?

A Digital Event for PhD Candidates, Postdocs and Junior Professors and Newly Appointed Professors

Wimpel Englisch Vertikal"Free speech" sounds easy, but in reality requires skills which need to be practiced.

We marvel at lecturers who quite happily reference to an audience for minutes on end without the benefit of notes, powerpoint or autocue - surely, we console ourselves, such speakers are born and not made!

In this concise 4-hour workshop I aim to demonstrate the exact opposite: That free speech can be learnt, practised, systematically improved and personalized. Thinking "on your feet", improvising structure, making logical links between sections, deepening and broadening information, and making a speech your own through use of metaphor and anecdote, are fundamental building blocks which every speaker can juggle and, in time, assemble at will.

The workshop aims not only to bring participants into contact with helpful techniques, but also to provide ideas and contexts for practice.
