At some point in your life you will have attended a workshop, but what happens when you are asked to deliver one? Some people relish the opportunity while others are scared by it. Whatever you feel about public speaking, it is a skill that is admired by many. Public speaking skills are important for everyone. This workshop is for those who wish to develop their skills, and is especially designed for people with little or no experience in running workshops.
