Event description

Description

Learning to talk about yourself, your accomplishments and your ideas can be hard. Sometimes, how you present yourself or an idea can be way off-base from what your audience needs or wants to hear. The real art of getting someone interested in you and your ideas is a two-way street. It’s a give and take. It’s the secret sauce of confidence, authenticity, curiosity, connection, and influence.


Wendy Zajack, Faculty Director of IMC and Assistant Professor of the Practice at Georgetown SCS will give a short presentation about how to think about who you are, how you’re perceived, and how you can best channel a great idea or thought into a conversation that can more naturally lead to follow-up and collaboration or action.


This will not be a sit and listen session, but will be fully interactive. Come prepared to pitch yourself and an idea, and be prepared to have a conversation about it with other attendees. This event is open to Georgetown SCS students, alumni, and prospective students as well as interested professionals.


Hoya Pitchmasters is an event series hosted by the PR & Corporate Communications program at Georgetown School of Continuing Studies designed to give professionals chance to work on building their confidence and skills in public speaking in a supportive environment. Attendees are expected to participate in hands-on speaking activities, and every session focuses on tips and tricks to improve public speaking and pitching skills.
