As a marketer, you're oftentimes placed in situations where you're asked to present ideas, whether that be to small groups in the company or externally as an ambassador of your organization. And while some people are naturally gifted orators, the truth is that most people work at it and hone their skills over time. This week on TIL, Katie invites Amma Marfo, Speaker + Facilitator, SPEAK Educators, to shed light on how you can stop talking and start presenting. We'll go through clips of inspiring speakers (like Amma!) and explore how you can steal their moves to up your public speaking game.
Tune in and learn:
- How to tap into stories to make your presentation more compelling
- How to plan for engagement and interaction and not be afraid to leave rooms for laughs
- How to bring in different voices into your talk and acknowledge the various ways they can be elevated by what you're sharing
Today I Learned ("TIL") is a weekly live show, airing 12pm ET on Thursdays as part of Social Media Week’s SMW+ streaming platform. TIL is hosted by Katie Perry, VP of Marketing at Public.com. Being a startup marketer means wearing about a thousand hats at once. At one moment you could be executing a social strategy and the next you could be analyzing data for a report or presentation. Marketers in general tend to seek out advice from people who have similar knowledge to them. We go to conferences to connect with like-minded people and connect with them on Twitter. But as a startup marketer, building a diverse network of specialists around you is key to success. Everyone's an expert in something, and so this show will bring on people with specific skills to learn about how they honed their craft, and how to emulate their success yourself.
