Would you like to find out what it takes to speak at our conferences?  We are running a webinar on 20 April at 5pm entitled “Presentation Skills for Conferences: An Interactive Knowledge Exchange“.   You will hear from our panel made up of David Beckham, Debbie Paul and Adrian Reed, all of whom are experienced, popular and well known presenters at our Business Analysis Conference.  They have agreed to share some of their presenting secrets; hints and tips that they use to maximise their clarity, content and impact when presenting to audiences of any size.  This will be an interactive panel session, so please come prepared with your questions

Topics (may) include:

  • Managing the Stress of presenting
  • Ensuring content quality
  • Getting your message across
  • Dealing with questions

This is particularly suitable for inexperienced speakers but it will also be beneficial for more experienced speakers.  Register here for this webinar

For all our conferences we are always looking for new speakers.  We issue a call for speakers roughly six months before each event.  If you would like to be added to our potential speakers list to receive these when they are issued please  e-mail jeremy.hall@irmuk.co.uk with your details. The submission process is pretty simple and you should be able to do it in 15-20 Minutes.  We require a short description 120-150 words plus three bullets on what attendees would learn from attending your session and a brief biography.  We do have a number of call for speakers issued at the moment as follows:

I am really looking forward to this webinar as I know there will be a lot of very useful information shared. I had a sneak preview of the webinar content last week and the information that the panellists will be sharing will be full of excellent advice.  We will be recording the webinar so if you can’t make the 20th April at 5pm please let me know and I will make the link available to you after it has taken place.
