How To Be More Confident
WIBF Manchester was delighted to welcome Joy Burnford from My Confidence Matters to deliver a practical workshop on “How to be more confident” on 16 October. We had over 35 attendees from The Co-operative Bank, RBS, Santander, Royal London, DLA Piper and Grant Thornton.
Joy talked through her own journey of gaining confidence in speaking in public, and it was reassuring to hear that public speaking is something that most people have (or have had) a fear of, and that there are techniques that can be used to help us all overcome this. Joy shared handy tips for public speaking such as using the “5Ps” (Push/Plan/Prepare/Practice/Perform) as well as the importance of your voice and body language.
The event received fantastic feedback, so a huge thank you to Joy, all the attendees and to The Co-operative Bank for hosting us.
