Speaking in Public Settings for Real People

  • UNO Pizzeria & Grill 9246 Schulze Drive OH, 45069 United States

It often seems like some of us were natural born communicators in public settings. And, then, there is the rest of us. We practice. We observe those we consider professionals. We buy new shoes that make us feel more confident. Still, many of us wish we could speak in front of a group with presidential grace and a professional comic's humor. However, that is a lot of pressure. Lets chat about incorporating authenticity in our public speaking opportunities generating confidence and successful outcomes.
