PARC public speaking workshop


Thursday 24th May, K2 Building, Keyworth Street, London South Bank University (LSBU), SE1 6LN, 10am-5pm. Room E-327.

This workshop aims to provide help and guidance to autistic people in regard to public speaking. Autistic people with experience in presenting in a variety of venues and audiences will be giving advice, and everyone will have the opportunity to work upon their own presentations and gain constructive feedback from their peers. People who attend will have the opportunity to either work in small groups or on their own to prepare a short presentation. And if they would like to, present to others at the workshop.

If you are interested in attending this event, please email to reserve a place. Priority will be given to those who will be presenting at this year’s Autism Show events. You may wish to bring a copy of a pre-prepared presentation on the day to work upon and should bring something to take notes (e.g. a laptop).
