When women show up and share their wisdom, we make the world a diverse and more inclusive place, one where better decisions are made. As a woman, your voice is powerful and it is time to unleash it.
Accelerate your career by learning to express your ideas clearly and eloquently. Learn to speak onstage to spread your reach. Create a powerful impact at your next business conference. Or simply learn to speak more effectively at your meetings. However high you aim, this session is for you.
This Public Speaking Masterclass will be presented by the women behind the book Unleash Your Voice: Powerful Public Speaking for Every Woman. Let Lavina, Joanne, Sonja and Anjali help you develop four important aspects of public speaking – presence, what you say, your voice and the stories you tell. This is your opportunity to refine your ability to connect, inspire and even raise funds for your organisation.
