Rerun of https://program.sha2017.org/events/91.html, which was well received and people asked for it to be done again. I may want to tweak the description a bit further.

As a technical person, you work with complicated and often important matters. To explain these, get your message across, raise your value and get a better job, it is essential that you can communicate your message to a wider audience. If you cannot effectively explain your solution or your issues to other people you will end up frustrated and unrecognized. Even for educating and training your peers, public speaking skills are very important.

In this workshop, you will improve your public speaking skills. We will practice and evaluate and practice some more.
