If you understand any of the following terms then this series of events is for you; LARP, dendritic cell differentiation, Aeroelasticity and flutter, SAAS vs CSS and LMFA, STFU, ROFL. I’m calling all the real geeks out there, my people, the people that are interested in all the complex things in the world. 


If you have to explain complexity in simple terms to others and they never seem to get it, then the Geekspeak events need to be in your calendar!


The Geekspeak series is designed and facilitated by renowned speaker, author and corporate relationship coach Eksteen De Waal. The course series aims to help people, the geeks (like Eksteen) get their messages across clearly.


Learn how to speak like Tony Stark, present like the boss in front of a large audience and get your technical and complex information across clearly, with Geekspeak’s six-part series.


The sessions are very interactive, (and no, you do not have to get dressed up as Daenerys Targaryen or Darth Vader, not going to happen, but close!)

MC1: Masterclass: Maximising Impact using Technology

To slide or not slide

You might be a "geek", but that means we need to know how to use technology for the best effect while presenting. Many professionals have never really learned how to deliver a successful presentation with slides as support. Then, it’s not surprising that slides are still regularly used as a reading tool and that many presentations are experienced as boring by the listeners

This session will show you exactly how to use slides in the most powerful way so that you involve your listeners, your message comes across unambiguously and your story will be better remembered.

You will learn how to;

  • Decide on slide types and formats that best suit your presentation

  • Learn how to improve the impact of your slide deck

  • Improve listener attention span with careful use of slides

  • How to create brain-friendly slides

  • How to seamlessly move your audience's attention from you to slides and back again 

  • Seamless transitioning between topics
