Public speaking is scary for many entrepreneurs, yet it remains a crucial aspect of leadership. Whether standing on stage, pitching ideas to investors or conveying vital messages to your team, projecting information effectively will always underpin the success of businesses everywhere. In order to unlock the mysterious art of speaking in public Heavy Chef has invited two world champions (Toastmasters 1995 and Toastmasters 2021) to a conversation about their craft. Verity Price, who was the 6th female in 80 years of competing and the first African to win a competition that features over 30,000 annual entrants, joins previous world champion Mark Brown for a no-holds-barred deep-dive into the structures, tactics, hacks, delivery styles and common mistakes that speakers make when delivering their message. This event will dispel myths, unlock secrets and arm you with the tools to make you - and your business - more competitive.
