Xero’s leadership team believes no matter your role, the ability to communicate confidently and effectively brings real value to the organization.
To this end, Xero hosts monthly “Lightning Talk Sessions” giving its employees a chance to sharpen their public speaking skills.
In support of this program Pitch Lab was invited in for a special “Laugh & Learn” workshop where attendees had the opportunity to receive actionable feedback on how to improve their timing, delivery and room command.
After learning Pitch Lab’s Top 5 Public Speaking Tips, it was time to practice and reflect on how these skills can be immediately implemented in their next client meeting.
What the Xero Team Said About Pitch Lab:
“Pitch Lab was extremely engaging and informative, just what you want to see in a public speaking class! I loved the fun aspect of the program, while still incorporating useful, actionable tips!”
“Pitch Lab was awesome… Improv comedy is a powerful tool to build group mind in a constructive way that really taps into the power of collective thought.”
“I learned that if we focus on other people, we can convert stage fright to excitement. I also learned that pauses allow us to communicate better, and authenticity connects us with our audience better. I love the workshop and I hope we can have more workshops like this.”
“Using stand up comedy techniques in public speaking also helps us foster that human value that we strive to be here. When he mentioned that Google robots use "um" in order to sound more human, that really resonated with me. We shouldn't be trying to present like robots, we should try to be ourselves and just insert enthusiasm and authenticity. I would love to attend more sessions!”
Your audience doesn’t want perfection, they want your connection.
