This session will be slightly more formal. From wanting to send a structured message of wisdom to perhaps a presentation of thanks to a group. Sarah will help you unpack your key points and talk through how to plan your content into a logical flow so those listening to you will hear it as you intended – understanding what you intended to say making sure it ‘lands as planned’ rather than them missing the point or even confused about your message
