The Next Normal Episode 10 – Talking the Talk

Join Chris Webb (@WorldWebb) and Helen Armitage (@HelenArmitage16) from the Careers and Employability Service at Sheffield Hallam University (@SheffHallamUni) for another foray into the world of work, as told by Covid-19.

This week, we welcome Peter Hopwood, Global Speaker Coach, TedX Coach and MC, to the (virtual) booth, where we discuss how the global speaking circuit has adapted to online delivery, address some of the key misconceptions about confidence in public speaking and look ahead to what the next normal might look like for professional speakers like Peter once restrictions ease and the choice between online, physical and hybrid events becomes a reality.
