Tuesday, May 8, 2012 from 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM (EDT)
Have you ever had that moment of panic and sweaty palms when your heart starts thumping quickly just knowing that you are the next one to speak?
It could be a presentation in school, a pitch for work, or even just answering a question in front of a group. You might feel at that moment people are looking at you, judging you. For most of us, at some point in our lives, speaking in public has felt like jumping off a high wall. It doesn't have to feel that way!
In this hour long workshop you will be given the basic tools to gain and sustain the interest and respect of your listeners, whether one-on-one or before a large group. You will learn how to manage and overcome these fears at this breakfast learningworkshop and develop the tools to become an effective speaker. It will also address how to keep your nerves in check by developing confidence in your speaking skills.
