Public Speaking Intensive with Video Feedback
Bill Smartt, President, Smartt Talk Inc.
Tuesday, July 17th from 1:00 - 4:00 pm
The main focus of this workshop is to get you on your feet and identify what is getting in the way of you being your best – live – in the moment.
• Want to improve your public speaking skills – be more genuine and less robotic?
• When pitching your ideas / leading demos, do nerves and anxiety get in the way of a killer presentation?
• Want to build your career by speaking at conferences, but need a safe place to test the waters and get expert feedback?
• Do you find yourself in a new leadership position sweating bullets every time you have to address a group?
The ability to connect with others in an authentic way is the key to being a great speaker – and it carries over into the success of your business and personal life.
This 3 hour intensive workshop is limited to 10 attendees who will get live expert coaching as well as video recording and playback to get clarity on exactly where they can strengthen their presentation skills.
You will leave this workshop having had the physical experience of being in front of a group, watching yourself on video and gain valuable insight into how you can be a more powerful communicator.
Preparation: No preparation required - we'll spend a few minutes to generate some content in class.
