Refining your Public Speaking and Presentation Skills 

July 25th from 8:00 - 10:00 pm

Bill Smartt, President, Smartt Talk Inc.

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. 

The limited class size of 8 attendees assures that each person has the opportunity to articulate their specific goals around public speaking and give a 1 – 2 minute pitch / speech to get expert feedback in a supportive environment. 

You will leave this workshop having had the physical experience of being in front of a group 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.
