Peak Performance

Pollinate Victoria is excited to host our second formal event at Fort Tectoria.

We are bringing to you a panel of Victoria's sharpest business leaders to discuss personal branding, excelling in your role, and maximizing the use of your downtime. Our panelists are entrepreneurs, leaders, creators, and parents who have achieved incredible success in their lives. Learn from these experts as they share the secrets to their success, their varied experiences, and stories of their professional careers. In the end, the successful execution of these topics and skills will help you achieve peak performance in your own career and life.

Our last event was marked by strong participation from the audience with a fantastic Q&A period and group discussion session. So, let's once again put our minds to engaging with not just the speakers, but those around us in the room. Pollinate exists to modernize networking by allowing members to build authentic relationships through shared interest and experience: So let's get connected.

Just a few housekeeping items:

  • As our last few events have sold out, if you reserve a ticket, but cannot attend, please cancel your ticket so that other members may take your place.

  • Drinks and light snacks will be provided.

  • Smart casual.

Skills training - Secrets from the stage

Public speaking and presenting

Whether it’s presenting to a client, leading a meeting, or pitching to a group of investors, we all rely on public speaking in our careers.

How we present ourselves and convey our message is essential to our success, yet how many can say they’ve really studied how professional performers practice, prepare, and perform? In the Secrets from the Stage seminar series, Iain Duncan draws on the works of stage performers, coaches, neuro-scientists, and sports psychologists to help audiences improve dramatically, quickly and permanently.

Pollinate is excited to be partnering with Iain to present part one of his Secrets from the stage seminar: In the Zone. In this engaging session, we examine the neuroscience and physiology of stage anxiety and discuss concepts and techniques from the performing arts and performance psychology to get us relaxed, confident, and in the zone. In addition to explorations of skills and concepts, members will see demonstrations of performing and practice techniques they can use right away, and will have an opportunity for questions and discussion. We are sure you will walk away with the resources and knowledge necessary to begin actively improving your presenting and speaking skills.

For a full breakdown of the session explore the event outline here.
