Presented by arts consultant and arts media identity, Paula Silbert

Artists are smart and confident speakers – until someone

  • Asks them to give a speech

  • Takes out a microphone to interview them

  • Invites them to open an exhibition or event

  • Wants them to explain their artwork.

Come, unwind and learn terrific tips to become a great conversationalist and confident public speaker.
