Event description


Academy42: Public Speaking for Leaders

"There are only two types of speakers in the world; the nervous and liars." - Mark Twain

Public Speaking is having the power to inform, instruct, inspire and influence... and that is itself can be pretty intimidating especially when you are the one who has to do the speaking. What is it about speaking to others that makes it so nerve-wracking? More importantly, how can I get over those nerves to be a better public speaker?

Public speaking is often misinterpreted as the ability to speak in front of a group. It is more accurately the skill of communicating your thoughts to one or more individuals. At this two-and-a-half-day event you will learn from three distinctly different, yet experienced facilitators in the art of public speaking.

Join us in Budapest where we will look at public speaking from three angles:

1. Planned Talks: What is the right structure for a speech? How do I arrange a presentation?

2. Improvisational Talks: How to think on your feet, responding to questions in a meeting, a sales pitch, an interview or a debate.

3. Delivery Techniques: Not only answering the age-old question of what you do with your hands, but how to really engage with your audience. How to use your body, set a tempo, manage inflection. This is about figuring out your style and owning it.


Richard Mulholland - The founder of Missing Link, a South African business that "has been saving the world, one bored audience at a time, since 1997."

Orlaith Carmody - The Managing Director of Gavin Duffy and Associates, an Irish based business that trains leadership teams to become better communicators - better presenters, public speakers, media spokespersons.

PJ Brady - The founder of 42Walls, a Belgian based company that coaches and promotes speakers, facilitators and coaches.

Academy42 Agenda:

* Day 1: Theory: Get your note pads out, we will be laying the foundation for all of your future public speaking needs!

* Day 2: Practical: Time to apply what you learned the day before. Test the theory and gain the tools to walk into any talk with confidence.

* Day 3: Showcase: The top 10 participants will be showcased in the beautiful Uránia Filmszínház theatre and will learn first-hand what it means to be speak on stage. All Academy42 participants will have free entrance to this event that will resemble a cross between TEDx and Fear Factor.

In the middle, like a "Pearl of the Danube", is the Margaret Island, a magical paradise with recreational park, huge flower garden, spa, hotels, sports facilities.

Roman monuments, Gothic, Baroque and Art Nouveau buildings represent the two thousand years of turbulent history of this city with. 1.8 million Inhabitants.
