About this event

**For technical and non-technical GDI NYC members**
Improv is not just about acting. Improvisational strategies can be used to help develop your public speaking skills to facilitate a tech talk at a Meetup, deliver your first conference talk or ace a white-boarding interview.

The goal for this workshop is to build on natural speaking and improvisational abilities to become more comfortable presenting with authority and awareness. Many students enroll in the workshop due to nervousness surrounding public speaking, but during the class, they learn what the root of this nervousness is, and how to use that to improve their performance in normal, daily interactions.

Come prepared to step out of your comfort zone, make new friends and leave with a new set of public speaking strategies and skills. Light refreshments will be served but please feel free to bring your own snacks. 

Girl Develop It NYC hopes to not only to educate women on technical topics but also to provide them with the toolkit to be recognized as subject-matter-experts in their STEM field. We're partnering with The Engaging Educatorto host this custom workshop for our members. We hope to see you there!

All attendees are expected to abide by the Girl Develop It Code of Conduct.
