Whether you’re speaking up in an online virtual meeting, a board meeting or giving a presentation, you need to be able to speak with confidence to influence your listeners.

Key Takeaways from this virtual workshop:
·       Learn how to stop overthinking & be present when you speak.
·       How to speak powerfully & authentically under pressure.
·       How to bypass the number one saboteur in public speaking, your inner critic.
