Inspire Masterclass

Dr Gemma Munro

Managing Director, Inkling Women

Monday 13 October

1.15pm – 3.15pm

Creating an Authentic and Influential Voice

Research shows that women experience more fear around public speaking than men. This fear means that women often pass up opportunities to speak up or speak out in organisations. As a result, women coming up the corporate ladder are less likely to hear from – and be inspired by – female role models.

In this action-packed and interactive session, Dr Gemma Munro, Managing Director of Inkling Women, outlines how women can turn fears of speaking into anticipation and the skills required to nail every opportunity to present. You will be given the opportunity to build your skills in a practical and meaningful way, and to leave the Masterclass with increased confidence in your speaking ability.

The Inspire program engages women in our profession to nurture a community that encourages networking, coaching, mentoring, leadership and personal growth.

Join us for this Masterclass session whilst at the AFA Conference and let us Inspire you.

All INSPIRE delegates are then invited back to the Pullman Hotel following this session for a Cosmopolitan Reception.

This cost is included in your Masterclass fee.

All Masterclass sessions are in addition to your registration ($130).
