Event description


Who is if for?

Do you have to speak in front of a big group and have no idea where to start?

Have you ever felt you didn't assert yourself in a high-level meeting or missed an opportunity to state your case?

You are not alone. Many women struggle to speak with impact.

What we say and how we say it is essential for moving our careers forward. This full-day training will provide you with valuable insights and practical techniques to immediately improve your public speaking and meeting skills.

Training topics

Elizabeth Van Den Bergh gives a full day training that tackles the public speaking challenge from different angles:

  • What inner stance are you operating from

  • Prepare to speak

  • Deliver with more impact

  • Make yourself heard in meetings

In the first part of the session, we will focus on what is holding us back: we will work on your inner stance or mental posture. And tackle the question how to manage your nerves.

In the second part we look at how to prepare for powerful speech (message, structure and storytelling) and in the third part focus is on delivering speech with power (body language, rethoric skills and engaging the audience).

During the last part we discuss techniques to make yourself heard in meetings and panels.

The Trainer

Elizabeth Van Den Bergh is on a mission to make women shine on the public stage and end all male panels. She has extensive experience in coaching and delivering training on public speaking skills.

Every year she works with the Young Leaders at the European Development Days to help them make powerful interventions at high-level panels. She recently coached the CEO of Nestlé Belgilux on public speaking as a tool for effective PR and internal communication.

What previous participants said

“I loved the content of the training. I found the tips on how to make your language more muscular very useful and practical. I also liked that there was a part devoted to psychological and mindset preparation which is indeed the basis of successful presentation. Separate thanks for a fantastic workbook full of very useful tips and recommendations.”

“The how to get rid of weak sentences part was a real eye-opener to me.”

“Tremendously interesting.”

Learning about all the manifestations of self-doubt (apologizing, weak voice, holding back) was a real eye-opener. The small group size, interactive exercises and the sharing of stories make the day very valuable for me. I am now familiar with the key ingredients for a good public speaking performance.”

“Applicable to real life instantly.”
