If you’re passionate about building your career or are working hard to push your own business forward – and you’re looking for any advantage you can to help you achieve the growth you want – the chances are you’ve never really given any thought to how Public Speaking can help you in your business or career.
The truth is, there are many ways that Public Speaking can help you when it comes to growing in your business or career and anything that gives you some kind of advantage in your market place – and over your competition – ought to be investigated.
And here’s an ideal opportunity for you!
Here at Wessex Speakers, we’re running an evening aimed solely at helping you understand how Public Speaking can help you in your business or career. We have three excellent speakers who are all keen to share with you some of the benefits that they’ve gained as a direct result of their willingness to step out of their comfort zone and speak in public.
Firstly, we have Steve Vear, who was recently appointed as General Manager (Retail) at Tech Data UK – a major UK company that you may not have heard of. The reason for this is that they’re a major wholesale supplier of all kinds of IT equipment to all of the major high street retailers that you will have heard of.
Having had almost 15 years experience with Tech Data UK, Steve’s got lots to share with us from his experiences and will be talking about coaching to achieve your goals. Of course, Public Speaking skills can have a big impact on our confidence in many areas of our business or career.
Secondly, Steve Bimpson (that’s me!) will be talking about how Public Speaking can be used from a marketing perspective.
If you talk to the right people, in the right way, at the right time, you can use Public Speaking to get more business for your company.
In fact, you can use it to get you a lot more business, and as a Sales & Marketing professional, I have a wealth of experience to share on this subject.
Finally, we have Jean Gamester with us.
Jean’s a Distinguished Toastmaster and is currently responsible for supporting the learning and development of 3,000 Toastmasters International members in the South of the UK. She’ll be talking to us about the unexpected leadership and entrepreneurial skills that she has developed as a result of joining the organisation.
She joined Toastmasters International 9 years ago because she wanted to develop the confidence to speak in front of the project teams she was supposed to be leading. In that 9 years, she has developed the skills to lead large programmes of transformational change in the public and private sector, become a CEO of an educational charity, and most unexpectedly of all, set up and runs her own successful consulting business.
In her talk she will discuss both the expected and unexpected benefits she has gained from being a part of Toastmasters, and unlock the secrets of how these benefits are possible by getting the most out of being part of this fantastic organisation.
“If you get out of Toastmasters all there is to get out of Toastmasters, you’ll never get out of Toastmasters.” Helen Blanchard, DTM, 1985-1986 Toastmasters International President
