What if you felt confident enough to say "yes" to every speaking opportunity that came your way?
Well, there's no reason why you can't be. The only thing standing between you and stellar public speaking skills is practice. Speak for Success is designed for emerging female leaders who want to develop their public speaking/presentation skills and improve their level of boardroom confidence.
If you're striving to:
reduce anxiety/nerves before meetings and presentations
project confidence and credibility when speaking with sr. management or important clients
position yourself as a leader in your organization
advance your career by being hired or promoted
receive a raise
influence colleagues by promoting your ideas clearly and confidently
...then you're in the right place.
Invest in yourself.
Taking the time to strengthen your communication skills is about investing in yourself. What is a well-delivered presentation, meeting, call or pitch worth you ask? Well, it could make the difference between:
getting hired or not getting a call back
being promoted or being passed over
receiving a raise or being told "there's no budget"
being assigned as a project lead or continuing to be an individual contributor
signing a new client or being told "no"
being identified as a "rising star" by sr. management or not being noticed at all
There's a reason why billionaire Warren Buffet and former PepsiCo CEO & Chair(wo)man Indra Nooyi said public speaking was one of the best investments they have ever made. Because the thing about public speaking, is that no matter what line of work you're in, you're going to have to do it eventually, especially as you advance through your career.
But if you're like most people (75% of the population, to be exact) public speaking can be a very stressful experience that can cause you to:
suddenly go "blank"
lose your train of thought mid-sentence
have debilitating anxiety
turn down career opportunities due to nerves
look visibly uncomfortable in of your colleagues and peers
miss a promotion or hire due lack of "leadership presence"
But guess what? We have good news for you. There is a cure, and it's called practice.
