Collaborating to inspire & mentor with Jonathan Talbott

TIP-Jonathan Talbott

Date: Wednesday 13th February
Time: 18:00 to 21:00
Location: Stille Veerkade 9, 2512 BE

In collaboration with Women in Innovation and Leadership – a Hague based, female student association of University College Leiden – we are happy to announce two events planned for 2019. After a successful ‘first’ joint event where Petra Fisher shared her tips about using LinkedIn, we have reached out to other renowned speakers to provide a presentation to a gathering of W.I.L. and WBII members. We cannot emphasise enough how inspiring it was to be able to share with these young, future leaders, entrepreneurs and professionals our own experiences and advice, so, we encourage our members to take part in these two events.

Jonathan_Talbott_profileOn Wednesday 13 February Jonathan Talbott will speak to us about:

Presenting Potential
There is only one thing more frustrating than having a great idea that nobody knows about: it’s when you try to tell people about your great idea and you make a mess of it.
Great ideas are made of potential. In order for that potential to become reality, we need to be able to talk about them. We need to pitch them, present them and have conversations about them, and that can be difficult and stressful.
Fortunately we all have a collection of communication tools at our disposal. We can learn how to use them better in order to make great ideas happen.
Jonathan Talbott helps individuals and organizations communicate their ideas. He has been the speakers’ coach for more than 200 TED and TEDx talks, which have achieved millions of online views. He teaches communicatons at Webster University and the Delft University of Technology. He helps banks, large corporates, museums, non-profits, NGO’s, designers, and tech companies create presentations to increase stakeholder involvement and to generate investment. Further, he trains startups at accelerators and incubators throughout Europe on communication, including pitching, storytelling and message strategy. 

Both of these evenings will take place at W.I.L’s location in the centre of The Hague: Stille Veerkade 9, 2512 BE from 6-9pm and each will have the same networking fee as at our regular events: €15/member and €25/non-member.

On Thursday 23 May (our regular networking evening and the 2nd collaboration event this year), Natali Drake will talk to us about Corporate Storytelling and how the art of storytelling is so vital in business. Click here to register for this event.
