Contact the organizers of the training, and offer yourself as a speaker. If you don't dare to perform yourself, be active during other people's performances. Ask witty questions, and communicate with the speaker after the speech.

Try to keep abreast of all the latest developments in your professional field, communicate with colleagues from other companies, share experiences and you will always be on top.
