Workshop: Talking Titles with Lesley Stephenson
17:45 - 21:45
TALKING TITLES WITH LESLEY STEPHENSON
Do the titles of your speeches and presentations really talk? You bet they do. They talk to the minds of your audiences and reap responses like: "This will be a worthwhile presentation" or "that sounds boring". "This conference speaker sounds like fun". Good titles don’t just talk. They lure and entice. They are billboards which steer the audience to focus on you and your offering. And while compelling titles don’t guarantee great content, they are a first vital step towards winning the attention of your target audience. Not only that, but talking titles can earn you money while you sleep, gather interest before you speak, and boost your recognition as a speaker.
In this workshop, international speaker and corporate communications trainer Lesley Stephenson will share with you the secrets which she and other professionals use to create Talking Titles for their work. She will reveal how Talking Titles boost the success and bookings of those who use them, and why time spent on creating great titles pays off. Lesley is a keynote speaker and corporate communications trainer. She has spoken to live audiences across 16 countries, and on TV and radio on 4 continents. She is also an acclaimed biographer.
The Zuriberg Toastmasters Club meets every second Tuesday in the gorgeous Zunftsaal room of the Blue Monkey restaurant. This meeting will have different format from the usual ones because we will have an educational session. In the first part of the meeting we will have the prepared speeches by our club members as well as their evaluation. With them, we close the first part of the meeting. We enjoy dinner together with delicious food from the buffet prepared by the Blue Monkey restaurant. After tending to our culinary needs, we start the second part of the evening with the educational session, the workshop given by Lesley Stephenson.
