Present Yourself to Success: Using Public Speaking

As a professional in an organization, you benefit greatly by improving your public speaking skills. Whether you’re presenting to a group of clients, colleagues or leaders in your organization, you need to be effective in getting your message across. Common concerns you might face before & during a presentation can include: Do I come across as knowledgeable and credible? Am I being engaging enough and generating enough interest in my message? Can they tell I’m nervous? Can I answer questions convincingly? This workshop program is based on Mary Cheyne’s Best Selling book “Present” Yourself in Public Speaking – Tell Your Inner Critic to SHUT UP! And the Real You to SPEAK UP! You will receive effective tools to bypass your inner critic and allow your authentic and most confident self to shine through. Breakthrough to a new level of public speaking that will get you noticed in your organization!

In this workshop you will learn:

• How to speak powerfully & authentically under pressure.

• How to bypass the number one saboteur in public speaking, your inner critic.

• How to own your power as an expert in your field & be able to translate your brilliance on stage.
