How do you present with confidence and impact?

 “Speaking gives you an opportunity to connect, build a relationship and change the way your audience thinks. Being able to tell a story in a clear and compelling way is essential for your ideas to gain traction.” Maryam Pasha.

Women in Health and Safety workshop

Women in Health and Safety is proud to announce details of an upcoming workshop which will help health and safety professionals with public speaking. It’s free and open to both men and women, and everyone who attends will gain insight into how to structure and deliver powerful presentations with confidence. There will also be advice for dealing with nerves and finding your authentic style.

The workshop will be delivered by Maryam Pasha, who is Public Speaking and Pitch Coach at X Equals Productions and Director and Curator at TEDxLondon.

It will take place at Safety & Health Expo (at ExCel, London) on 20th June at 14.00. You can register for a free ticket here.

About Maryam Pasha

Maryam Pasha’s mission is to give life to ideas. The world is full of fascinating ideas, knowledge and theories, but they are often complex, abstract or hidden away, and hard for broad audiences to access. Maryam wants to give these ideas the chance to change the world.

Maryam is the Director and Curator of TEDxLondon 2018 and was the founder and lead curator for TEDxEastEnd since 2011, running 13 large and small TEDx events. Maryam’s philosophy is to create experiences that go far beyond the traditional speaker-audience interaction. She built TEDxEastEnd into a whole-day immersive event for over 1000 people and the talks from TEDxEastEnd have been viewed online over 2.5 million times.

Maryam worked in the human rights and charity sector for 10 years. She is the Director of X Equals Productions working with corporates, startups, charities and individuals to help bring their ideas to life – through large-scale events production, speaker and pitch coaching and curation. Her clients include Tata Consultancy Services, BBC, Open Data Institute, Irrational Agency, Impetus Private Equity Foundation, BeyondMe, L Marks and HSBC.

She is currently writing a book on imposter syndrome and you can watch her TEDx talk on the subject below.

Personal coaching for 6 women in health and safety

Maryam has kindly agreed to coach 6 women in the run up to Women in Health and Safety event – and if you’d like one of them to be you, there’s still chance. Submit your application by 30th April by following this link – you’ll more information about what’s involved and you’ll see the application form at the bottom of the page.

The Women in Health and Safety committee will review the applications and will choose the final 6 women to take part. Those 6 selected women will have personalised training with Maryam Pasha, and will then present on the keynote stage (which is supported by Safety Media) in a ‘3 minute soapbox challenge’. The challenge will see each speaker giving a 3 minute talk, with confidence, on a topic of their choice in front of an audience of up to 200 people. For more information about the soapbox challenge, including how to take part, see here.
