Learning outcomes:

  • Don’t rely on PPT – you know your stuff
  • Presenting is not just for extroverts
  • How to snap out of the cycle of fear

Speaker Details:

Gail Downey is an experienced broadcaster and filmmaker having worked for BBC and ITV TV and radio. She runs media and crisis communications training across a wide range of sectors from government departments including the Foreign Office, technology companies, legal and financial sector to pharmaceuticals and the NHS. Her passion for communication means she is asked to facilitate public consultation meetings ensuring everyone’s voice is heard. She uses her skills from presenting live broadcasts to support those who want to take their career further where being able to speak at a conference, address stakeholders or investors is a dealbreaker. Gail is a fan of Susan Cain’s book “Quiet” about the power of introverts and believes there is no reason why the quietest voice cannot make the biggest impact on stage or film. You don’t have to be a flamboyant extrovert to be a first class speaker. You just have to believe in what you do.
