Using Public Speaking to Multiply Your Business Success

The SPC and the Society for Women Environmental Professionals are partnering to bring you this workshop.

Whether you are a new or seasoned consultant, solo professional, or entrepreneur, you will benefit greatly by improving your public speaking skills. When you are presenting to a group of potential clients or pitching to investors or lenders, you need to get your message across effectively to be successful.

Common concerns you might face before and during a presentation can include: Do I come across as knowledgeable and credible? Am I being engaging enough and generating enough interest in my prospects? Can they tell I’m nervous? Do I sound too “salesy”?

In this presentation, you will learn:

    • Where and how to get speaking engagements.
    • How to speak powerfully and authentically under pressure and win clients.
    • How to bypass the number one saboteur in public speaking, your inner critic.
    • How to own your power as an expert and be able to translate your brilliance on stage.

Attend this workshop to break through to a new level of public speaking that will get you noticed!
