I EAT PUBLIC SPEAKING FOR BREAKFAST

We’ve all seen the inspiring viral TED Talk videos online. Many of us dream about capturing the imagination of an audience, while others are tasked with presenting on a smaller scale. No matter the venue, public speaking is not as easy as it looks. Truly, it’s an art form to be mastered. But where to begin?

In preparation for our second season of the Emerald Speakers Series, we’re offering a crash course in public speaking. Join Rapid Fire Theatre alumni and last year’s Emerald Awards host Julian Faid and Executive Director Gregory Caswell for the tips and tricks needed to nail your presentation.

Alberta Emerald Foundation’s Gregory Caswell shares his experiences as a theatre artist and how they relate to his discoveries from TED’s Guide to Public Speaking.

Join Julian Faid of Rapid Fire Theatre as he shares advice on public speaking from his 20 year career as an improvisor.

MAKE YOUR EMERALD AWARD NOMINATION STAND OUT

Writing an Emerald Award nomination, or telling your story to a panel, can be intimidating. Wouldn’t it be great to find out what the judges are considering before you hit submit? As the Emerald Awards Nominations Deadline approaches, we’ve asked two of our most experienced judges to answer that question, as well as to provide advice on how to make your nomination stand out.

Not submitting a nomination this year? No problem! This webinar may also be beneficial to grant writers or anyone who has to write about their organization’s work for a review panel.

Becoming a podcast pro

Podcasting has become a highly popular and increasingly accessible form of communication. But as avid podcast fans will know, some are great, and others, well, kind of miss the mark. On October 14, 2020, the AEF held Becoming a Podcast Pro, which featured 29th Annual Emerald Awards finalists Chris Chang-Yen Phillips & Trevor Chow-Fraser (Let’s Find Out) and Derek Leahy (Rural Routes to Climate Solutions), plus Alberta-based blogger Linda Hoang (Don’t Call Me a Guru/Here’s What I Think) and our very own What On EARTH Can We Do? co-host Colleen Nuc.
