Public speaking is an important skill to master for anyone but especially business owners and entrepreneurs. Getting your message across is important to the overall success of your business or career. Some people fear it however if you follow a simple process from preparation to delivery, the results can separate you from your competition.
This short but impactful session will introduce you to five key steps that will allow you to shine. Practices for each step will be provided along with examples of what to do and what not to do. An opportunity will be provided for attendees to practice their public speaking and obtain feedback aimed at improving their speaking skills.
This session is geared to anyone but especially business owners who introduce their products and services in small and large settings and/or provide presentations to audiences as part of their service.
