Summer Speaker Training Course for
When: July 22 through September 16, 2020
Time: 12:00 - 1:30 PM EST
ESD Global is excited to announce a new training: ESD Global's Speaker Training Course, which will run July 22nd through September 16th, 2020.
We know that a movement like ESD Global takes a community of people willing to teach classes, use their voice to tell their stories and speak at events to create a lasting change in the world through education, vulnerability and influence. It is the desire to change the world that makes us excited to announce the ESD Global Speaker Training Course.
We have the immense privilege of partnering with Erin Weed, a communication strategist who helps people clarify their purpose, simplify their message and amplify their truth. She is the founder of EVOSO and Speaker School, which are programs that train purpose-driven leaders to become authentic public speakers.
The ESD Global Speaker Training Course is open to anyone in the ESD Global community who is looking for an opportunity to grow their skills in public speaking. Our hope is that this opportunity will help you to increase your communication skills in the classroom, workplace, and communities. If you have the desire to speak at conferences and events, locally, nationally, or internationally, we believe the value of this training can take your message of change to new heights. Graduates of the ESD Global Speaker Training Course will have the opportunity to apply for the newly founded volunteer Speakers Bureau at ESD Global. (More information on this coming soon).
The ESD Global Speaker Training Course will consist of seven sessions over a 9-week period. The course meets weekly on Zoom for 90 minute starting Wednesday July 22, 2020 at 12:00 PM EST. The format of each class will include a lecture on “how to” on the content subject for that week, followed by group work time to implement what was taught. At the end of each class, if needed, deadlines will be assigned. After session 6, between August 31-September 11 each course participant will present and record and share a webinar in collaboration with ESD Global. What a great way to practice new skills! The final session will meet on Wednesday September 16th.
