About the Event

Have you ever wanted to showcase your knowledge and expertise by being a speaker at a CPHR Speaker Series event? Now is your chance!

We will be hosting the first ‘Train the Speaker’ session in which you will learn how to prepare for, structure and deliver an engaging presentation, while being prepared for set backs. Participants will be able to apply these skills and tools to a real life situation, so come prepared with a solution you have worked on for an HR challenge. In addition, all registrants will submit a speakers abstract that will be critiqued by other registrants.

Alex will walk through the following points:

  1. Defining your story - The Why
  2. What does the best presentation look like?
  3. What are common pitfalls and stumbling blocks?
  4. Building audience engagement into your presentation
  5. Delivering on expectations

What to Bring?

Material will be delivered to registered participants in advance. Please come ready to discuss the material.

Why Attend?

Participation in this session has a number of benefits, including the opportunity to be a featured speaker at CPHR’s future Speaker Series events. In addition, professional members earn Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours towards their CPHR designation.
