Has the negative voice in your head ever caused you to hold back from an opportunity you would have loved? Maybe you didn’t apply for a job or a secondment or offer to manage a project you saw as an interesting challenge? Or maybe sometimes you don’t speak up when you have an amazing idea that would really help your organisation, as you’re fearful of what people might think of the idea?

This practical session will help you identify your imposter within, understand the impact it has, and help you identify ways to move forward whilst recognising the presence of the imposter.

Jo will share tips and techniques based on personal experience and those of people she has supported. The session will be interactive in nature, incorporating personal reflection and group discussions.

You will leave the session with a greater level of awareness of the imposter within, and practical tips so that you will be able to notice when it is holding you back and will be able to empower yourself.

Jo Walley is a coach and founder of the TRUE Leaders Community, a supportive group of people who ensure they are leading the life that gives them fulfilment and satisfaction. She is passionate about helping people get rid of the unnecessary baggage they are carrying so that they feel empowered to lead a life they love.

£60 plus fees (£65.27) for LIEM members, £85 plus fees (£92.22) for non-LIEM members.

Interactive Tools for
Presenting and Teaching
with Ned Potter

Thursday 20th October 2022, 10:00-13:00

Across library sectors we need to welcome new users, teach workshops, and present ideas. Presentations often become more exciting to deliver, and more engaged with your communities, if we know when and how to involve our audiences in the process.

There are lots of freely available tools which allow these sessions to be more interactive, and they can be used instead of a traditional presentation tool like PowerPoint or alongside it. They also work equally well in online, and face-to-face, situations. We’ll look at how, when and why to use these tools, and you’ll also have a chance to try a few of them out.

The range of tools explored will include Menti (a very versatile quizzing tool which allows for surveys, questions, and a lot more than basic right or wrong answers – you can also build entire presentations in Menti), Google Slides (which includes Google Q&A, a feature which allows the audience to submit questions to the presenter even in face-to-face sessions), and Padlet (which can be used to help the audience collaborate with each other).

We’ll also look at the ways in which PowerPoint can be used interactively, and at the differences between presenting online and in person.

Ned Potter is an Academic Liaison Librarian at the University of York, and a Trainer for various organisations including UKeiG, the Bodleian, the NHS and the British Library in the UK, PiCS in Australasia, and NEFLIN in the US. His own presentations have been viewed over 2.5 million times online. His book The Library Marketing Toolkit was published by Facet in 2012. Ned can be found online at ned-potter.com and on Twitter at @ned_potter.
