Speaking on the Spot: How to Speak Effectively Under Pressure

Gail Zack Anderson, Applause, Inc.

As trainers, consultants, leaders, and coaches, we are called on often to share an opinion, answer a tough question or make a case. If we have time to plan and focus, we do great. But often we are called on suddenly—in the hallway, in a meeting or literally in the elevator. And that’s when we can stumble a bit. Get tongue tied. Forget some of the points we wanted to make. It's aggravating.

Does any of this sound familiar? If it does, be sure to attend this session, as we explore strategies and tools for speaking under pressure. You’ll learn and practice ways to build your confidence from the inside out and outside in. You will discover ways to answer questions, even challenging or hostile ones, with more grace, aplomb, and finesse.

Join us as we discover the ins and outs of speaking on the spot.

Read more on Gail's blog  and we'll build on this topic as well as practice within our meeting session!
