Whether we're talking in a team meeting or presenting in front of an audience, we all have to speak in public from time to time. We can do this well, or not so well.  When we convey our message in a confident and clear way, it can enhance our reputation, boost our self-confidence, advance our career, and open opportunities.

This two-day workshop provides the tools, tips and actual practice that will help participants speak with more confidence and ease at work and social settings. Participants will have the opportunity to present through interactive practice in a safe and forgiving environment.
