Mid November took place the first edition of Speakings, dedicated to the HR specialists in Romania. After a tight finale with improvised speeches after having just one minute to think about them, Alexandra Stan, HR Business Partner OTP Bank, won the prize for the best public speaker among the human resources specialists.
The following places were conquered by Alina Radulescu, HR Director Teamnet, Liana Patulea, HR Manager Estee Lauder and Corina Petcu, Recruitment & Development Specialist NN Romania. And Luiza Banyai, Organizational Development & People Capabilities Leader Enel, won with her speech about “femininity and feminism” two prizes from the sponsors, among which the one for the most creative speech, offered by Tempo Advertising.
Speakings is the first public speaking show in Romania, a unique concept found at the beginning of the road as a commercial event. Under this name there will be organized a series of open shows, but also teambuilding events for the corporate environment, all on a original formula that offers at the same time entertainment and useful information in organizing and growing the quality of the speech for anybody that needs to speak in public.
The public speaking classes and shows organized by the Speakings entrepreneurs have already been enjoyed by tens of companies in Romania, from Flanco, EY Romania, Estee Lauder, HP, Unilever, Oracle, Baneasa Shopping City and up to famous lawyer firms. Only at the HR event were represented companies such as: Banca Transilvania, Toyota, OMV Petrom, Accenture, Stefanini, Telekom, PepsiCo, Oracle, Kellogg’s, Cegeka, Paypoint, Urgent Cargus, Genpact, Ing Bank, Danone and EY.
The first show was organized for the first time three years ago for the graduates of Selftrust Academy’s public speaking courses. And because all the editions were very successful, SelfTrust Academy alongside Tempo, decided to turn this event into a brand in itself.
