Course: “Learn to Love Public Appearance”


Are you a woman who wants to conquer the fear, improve your public appearance and learn to love it? We have a course for you!

On the occasion of the International Women’s Day, a course will be organized for 8 female patrons of the American Corner Novi Sad, titled “Learn to Love Public Appearance”. Eligible for the course are women aged 18 or older, regardless of their profession or experience in public appearance. The key criterion for selection of participants will be the short motivational letter submitted through the questionnaire. The training will be conducted in Serbian.


During three two-hour workshops on March 14, 19 and 26 starting at 6 PM, the participants will learn about the basic rules of public appearance (what to bear in mind before, during and after the appearance) and master their public appearance and presentation skills through technical exercises.


The training will be dealing with:

- Types of public appearance and preparation

- Verbal and non-verbal communication

- Speech writing

- Creating (PowerPoint) presentations

- Technical exercise of giving a short statement (recording with a camera and watching with feedback) and a presentation exercise


The training will be led by Maja Ciganović, a certified practical skills and strategic planning trainer, who worked as a public appearance trainer at the “Women Leadership Academy” and the “Week of Social-democracy”. She also cooperated with such organizations as “National Democratic Institute” from Washington, DC, “Friedrich Ebert Foundation” from Germany, “Modern Skills Center” from Belgrade and Youth creative center “OKCe” from Novi Sad. Through social activism and as a vice-president of “Vojvodina” women’s basketball club, she communicated with the media, which is why she possesses both theoretical and technical knowledge in public appearance. She turned her love for transferring knowledge related to public appearance into the “Learn to Love Public Appearance” program – advice, ideas and examples of excellent public appearances which are part of this program can be found on the program’s FB page.
