The Umms & Errs – FSB Networking London to Essex Borders

The Umms & Errs (And other words we never scripted for that killer talk). Getting your message across effectively can often be a struggle if you find fear and anxiety get in the way of stepping up to speak.

With so many online and virtual opportunities for people to speak and share their knowledge, it is crucial we show up in our best light, make every word count and be even more engaging by eliminating those annoying and distracting umms and errs. Getting your message across effectively can often be a struggle if you find fear and anxiety get in the way of stepping up to speak. It can result in you filling all the gaps in your talk with an um or an err, leaving no space for you to have your desired impact. Umming and erring can convey a lack of confidence (the opposite of the effect you want to have) and lead members of your audience to maybe lose interest and believe you have done little preparation. (When you have probably given blood sweat and tears to his talk).

The best speakers know how to pause and let their talk breathe, the result is impact and being perceived as the expert in the room. In this talk hear from Aly Harrold, an award-winning speaker and Professional Speaking Coach who was awarded Business Woman Of The Year 2018 (under 5 years) and the Womans Champion Award 2020 from the Kent Women In Business Awards. Aly specialises in helping entrepreneurial women find their voice to deliver their message to a wider audience within the business arena. She has coached several TEDx Speakers and currently runs workshops, programmes and on-line courses for speakers in the South East & London.

The next FSB networking meeting will be held online on 28 May at 9.30-11.00am.
