Public speaking workshop

In order to help our speaker feel more confident on the stage, we organised a public speaking workshop last Thursday. Instead of P-Luxing, we spent  a great evening with some of the speakers and two guests from the Toastmasters Brussels. We would like to thank  Serge Pegoff and Thomas Vervaet for their feedback, great advices to our speakers and nice time spent together.

New developments: Ideas That Matter #2 on July 4th

It doesn’t really show from this blog, but a lot is happening around Ideas That Matter. After the previous generation of European Commission stagiaires finished their traineeship at the end of February, a new group of enthusiastic trainees has taken over the initiative.

That means there is absolutely wonderful news: the second edition of Ideas That Matter is taking place on 4th of July at the Hub Brussels. It is promising to be another interesting night of inspiring presentations on many different topics. In the framework of the presentations, a group of ‘old’ and ‘new’ team members held an informal Pecha Kucha night to work on their presentation skills.

At the same time, another project is in development: to establish Ideas That Matter as a proper NGO dedicated to help young Europeans to have their voices heard, their public speaking skills developed and their ideas spread. To stay up to date with on all these developments, keep an eye on this blog and our Facebook page.
