Presenting for Introverts

Shy is not a four-letter word

Led by Ilene Bergelson
Do you find standing in front of a room or screen full of people to be unnatural? Do you see yourself as the “tech person” or the “data person,” rather than a stage animal?

This session explores how presenting feels different to folks who identify as shy, introverted, or analytical. Learn how to keep an audience engaged without feeling awkward. Discover the single most significant sticking point that holds up presenters who struggle with being in the spotlight. Walk through techniques to approach content, relate to the audience, and manage nerves. Get that shift in perspective that will give you the chance to feel freer while you (or the introverts you know) lead the room authentically.

This session is for anyone who prefers to be behind the scenes, yet wants to feel more grounded, purposeful, and confident when delivering their message.
