United Arts Council

November Learning Lunch

The Art of Public Speaking for Grant Interviews & Other Aspects of Nonprofit Life

Presented by Karin Wiberg

Thursday, November 16, 2017

Noon – 1:30 pm

Location: United Arts Council of Raleigh & Wake County, 410 Glenwood Avenue, Suite 170, Raleigh (enter on Tucker Street).

When you interview with a grant panel, talk to potential donors, or present to your board of directors, the listeners are assessing more than your organization’s mission. If your communication skills are lacking, you may be leaving money and support on the table. In this interactive session, you’ll learn:

  • three key elements of good presentations – so you meet your audience’s needs;
  • what panelists look for in grant interviews – so you can address “the other side of the table” with ease;
  • how to answer questions effectively – so your responses leave a positive impression.

We’ll suggest resources to improve your public speaking skills—and give away a copy of Presentation Sin by Alan Hoffler.

Karin Wiberg currently serves on the Raleigh Arts Commission’s Grant Committee. She is a former United Arts Council grant panelist and member of the Piedmont Laureate selection panel. A member of a professional speakers’ mastermind group and president of Cardinal Toastmasters, Karin has achieved the Advanced Communicator Bronze (ACB) credential. As the owner of Clear Sight Books, Karin helps business leaders write and publish books. She has been managing editor for Raleigh Review (for which she wrote many grant applications).

Brown bag lunch and United Arts provides beverages. RSVP here.
