Ep 211: How To Be A Great Speaker


In recent times there has been an explosion in the number of conferences, webinars and indeed podcasts aimed at the talent acquisition audience.  The kind of peer to peer learning these platforms are driving is incredibly useful and therefore, extremely popular. However, this only all works if there a steady flow of practitioners who are prepared to step up and share their story and I know this is something that many people find challenging.

My guests this week are Audra Knight,  senior manager of employer branding at Foundation Medicine and Katrina Kibben the founder and CEO of Three Ears Media.

Audra and Katrina are both fantastic speakers who have some brilliant advice to share with anyone who either wants to get started or be better at speaking.

In the interview, we discuss:

  • Why a talent acquisition professional would want to get involved with speaking
  • How to get started
  • How to find speaking opportunities
  • How to pitch to speak
  • Should speakers be paid?
  • How to prepare
  • Dealing with nerves
  • Most common speaking mistakes
  • The importance of preparation

Audra and Katrina also talk about the favourite presentations they have given.
