DIANA ROBERTSON

ADD SOME TED TO YOUR SPEECH

Have you ever found yourself unable to stop watching TED speeches, one after the other, as if there was some invisible magnet that captured your attention and didn’t let go? At the same time, have you ever felt that some of your speeches were lacking that special force, making your the audience “turn off” during your speech?

In this workshop you’ll find out what are the key elements to a successful TED speech according to numerous researches that analysed thousands of talks. You will see some of the greatest examples of how TED speakers integrated such elements into their speeches and will leave with a luggage of useful material. By the end of this workshop you’ll have the tools to create your own TED-style talk, so you can impress your audience at your next Toastmasters meeting!

TREVOR SMITH

YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE BY CHANGING YOUR THINKING

With the ‘rise of the machines’ does this spell the end of thinking as we know it? Are the internet and algorithms killing thinking?

This workshop will discuss these issues as well as quickly look at and explain how to use to our advantage ten different styles of thinking; Abstract, Analytical, Creative, Concrete, Critical, Convergent, Divergent, Sequential, Holistic and finally Design Thinking.

Participants will have a better understanding of their ‘Thinking Strengths’ and where we need to improve our thinking skills so that we don’t forget how to think and perhaps become irrelevant!

CATALIN PAVAL

WIN WIN IS NOT THE WHOLE STORY

While some say that life is a sales pitch, I can state without hesitation that there is no day that passes without being put in a situation where we have to negotiate something, anything.

Some seem to have it in their blood, others do it unwieldy. But since negotiation is a skill, we will have a short walk through some terms and definitions, we will talk about a few rookie mistakes that can lower your win, and put together a list of to-do’s for increasing your chances for a good result.

You will find out few new information that will change the way you approach the future negotiations and that could tip the balance in your favor.
