Last month, Ed and Rotary Club brought together over 50 individual volunteers to pull-off the fall Career Development Conference on Public Speaking for seniors in the Academies of Birmingham at six-BCS high schools. Over the course of three months, students participated in in-school sessions that equipped them with the knowledge and skills they need to choose a presentation topic, engage their audience, and develop an elevator pitch. Their hard work culminated in a full-day professional conference, where they learned event more about the art of storytelling, executive presence, and how to develop a presentation. At Ed, we are overwhelmed by the sheer volume of people who were involved in the entire process, who dedicated hours and input and effort to our students’ personal and professional success – but (like we always say) don’t take our word for it. Check out the images below to see what our students have to say and see more pictures from the actual event here.
