Lunch and Learn: Public Speaking Tips and Tricks

December 6, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

| Free

Do just the words “public speaking” make you nervous or do you simply want to beef up your public speaking skills? Join the UpStart Center for Entrepreneurship on Thursday, Dec. 6 from noon–1 p.m. for a lunch and learn titled “Public Speaking Tips and Tricks.”

Over lunch, Deb Neuman, president of the Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce, will go over how to:

  • Reduce your anxiety and stress
  • Prepare without sounding “over” prepared
  • Win over your audience
  • Tell a “story” that people will remember
  • “Recover” when you stumble (because you will)

Deb Neuman has “talked a lot” in various capacities including serving as president of the Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce since January 2016, as deputy commissioner for Maine’s Department of Economic and Community Development, and as the director of the Target Technology Incubator at the University of Maine. She has “talked a lot” on the radio as the former producer and host of the “Back To Business” radio show, morning co-host on BIG 104.7 and as a regular guest on the GH/RT show. She “talks a lot” on TV too, with her BIZ TIP segment on WABI TV 5.

Seats are limited; RSVP at: https://bit.ly/2PJF4zZ.
