ELC Webinar About How to Become an International Speaker

The SPDT at the English Language Centre hosted a webinar titled ‘How to Become an International Speaker-Unleash the Leader in You.’  The webinar, which was held on 14th October 2021, was attended by UTAS-Shinas staff and students as well as guests from other institutions within Oman and abroad.  Educational Coach, Educationalist and Motivational Speaker Ms Vilma Barbasa served as the resource speaker. Presenting all the way from Brazil, she talked about the importance of growing our international network and overcoming the fear of public speaking.  She shared her journey about her humble beginnings and mentioned how she developed her English language skills by studying hard and taking all opportunities.  Her motivational message to the participants was about getting out of the comfort zone and trying new things.  She encouraged teachers to facilitates opportunities for students to interact with other students from around the world.  Ms Vilma ended the session with a famous quote, ‘Life isn’t about finding yourself, Life is about creating yourself’ (George Shaw). UTAS-Shinas student Bayan Al Hosni introduced the speaker and presented the vote of thanks at the end.  The ELC plans to hold more events in which students will be encouraged to take part and will be provided opportunities to interact with international presenters.  This initiative is aimed at developing students’ confidence and experience of joining webinars as well as improving their public speaking skills.
