“Would You Share a Few Words? Preparing Short Talks Lawyers are Called to Make”

October 7, 2016

“Would You Share a Few Words? Preparing Short Talks Lawyers are Called to Make,” will be presented by premier communications consultant Ruth Milligan, from 1-4 p.m., Friday, October 7, in Drinko 349. Ms. Milligan will use the format of a TED talk to illustrate what makes a compelling talk, how to draw in a listener, and the best way to make a few salient points. She will highlight the process of developing an interesting, short talk.

Lawyer-leaders are frequently asked to say a few words; sometimes there is an opportunity to prepare, and at other times, the comments are off-the-cuff. This workshop will help build a speaker’s confidence in delivering a message that is easily understood, and memorable.

Ruth Milligan is the co-curator of TEDxColumbus program, and founder and principal of ar.tic.la.tion, where she is the lead executive speech coach, trainer and facilitator. She pulls from her over 25 years of communications expertise, helping individuals at all levels move from good to great in the communication influence. She is highly regarded for her curation of  TEDxColumbus, as well as for her passion and skill in developing communications’ talent.
