Public Speaking Academy - Off the cuff public speaking

Do you ever find yourself stuck for something to say? Or only think of the perfect comeback when you wake up at 3am? 

Then this is the workshop for you! Improv is often thought of as being just for aspiring actors (anyone else remember Michael Scott in the US Office?!) but it’s actually a really useful skill to have in business. Ilona will offer her tips on thinking on the spot, constructing compelling arguments and making sure you *always* have something to say. As ever, this will be an interactive session in a hugely supportive environment.

About the speaker, Ilona Alcock: 
Ilona is the Sector Group Manager at pro-manchester, the largest business development organisation in the North West. Having held a diverse range of roles in the past – everything from Commercial Litigation Solicitor in DLA Piper UK LLP to running a bespoke software development company with her husband – Ilona has gained a real insight into what makes different businesses work. Outside of her day jobs, Ilona has been an active JCI member since 2011 and was awarded a JCI Senatorship in 2018. Highlights of her JCI career include making the European finals of both debating and public speaking, launching the JCI UK Ten Outstanding Young Persons Awards and winning European awards for two local projects (one of which was also shortlisted globally). She utilises her experience to run training courses on public speaking and networking for a range of audiences, including the JCI UK Public Speaking Academy.
