Speaking, Collaborating and Presenting

Styled Quote

Presenting your ideas – confidently and coherently – in front of an anonymous crowd, among a room full of peers, with professional colleagues, or with clients, can still be nervous affair for a lot of us. But it’s a chance to tell your story, to be heard, and to make an impact. You can get better at it but it takes practise, feedback, and more practise. Attend Study Smart events to get a chance to access the expertise and space you need to practise your presentation, to use your voice, and to find your audience.
