SWIBN February Event – Find Your Voice

SWIBN Tuesday is back, and this month we have something extra special. Professional speaking coach and trainer Maire Garvey will be with us, divulging her top tips for giving a killer presentation.

Being able to stand in front of an audience, whether it’s your peer group, the board of your company, or an audience interested in hearing your point of view, is vital to success in business these days. It is also a skill that can help people to become an expert in their field, which in turn can yield additional business for you or your firm.
The night will cover all the necessary skills to deliver a speech or presentation that is both informative and engaging, and will empower your audience to think or act differently. Topics covered include crafting the content so that it is engaging and informative; designing visual aids that will support and enhance the material, and finally, delivering the material in a way that keeps the audience with you every step of the way.

This event will be suitable for all levels. For those with no experience, it will give them confidence and a template for producing consistently good presentations; for those with some experience, it will improve on whatever they are already good at, and help them find alternative ways of doing things that have been less effective for them in the past. And experienced speakers will benefit from learning new ways of putting their material together, and a constructive critique of their presentation skills.

On the night, Maire will also be showing us how to utilise effective storytelling in our businesses. Many businesses don’t see where the ‘story’ is in their business, and yet most businesses have one that is of interest to potential clients, investors, etc. After this event, participants will have a template that will allow them to tell their story effectively to different audiences, which will raise their business profile and give them a reputation as a speaker of note. We’d ask that before you arrive, you have a 3-5 minute story prepared to practice on the night.

marketing ireland, fill your business with clients, ireland

Is your business a “Me Too” or ‘Same As’’ business, that looks and sounds like everyone else’s? This training will help you discover what makes you unique, provocative and amazing. By harnessing this uniqueness through your marketing strategy, you can enable your company to make all the money you could ever want! During the event we’ll cover:

  • How to grab attention
  • Content that speaks to your ideal client
  • Measuring results of marketing
  • Marketing plans that work
  • Thinking outside the box

Emma Boylan helps small business owners who struggle with marketing to fill their business with ideal clients. She does this by encouraging them to stand out NOT blend in to the background like all the companies around them. When Emma’s client’s stand out, they have massive breakthroughs in their profit and attract their ideal clients again and again.

Emma left her 9 to 5 job 4 years ago to fulfil her dream of starting her own business, Outside the Box. When she saw that most marketing was all the same and that businesses were really struggling to attract the right clients, she seized this gap in the market to help businesses discover and promote their uniqueness. Using her passion for creative content and background in psychology, Emma has helped 100’s of businesses get crystal clear on their message, enabling them to stand out, get noticed and fill their businesses with dream clients!
