Watch out for repeat of this popular session. Please sign on to the waiting list if you would be interested to attend.
Many of us have heard about the young Swedish climate change campaigner Greta Thunberg and how her speeches and actions have attracted massive global interest. Her messages to the public are both highly interesting and controversial – so much so that Penguin have recently published a book of her speeches. Steve, from Winning with Words, will put on a 2 hour lunchtime seminar looking at what Greta is saying and the methods she uses to get her message across. Participation will be encouraged – and should be lively!
