Workshop: The Art of Communication

Communication is a skill and like a muscle, it takes time to train and strengthen.

Over the course of 2 hours, we will collectively practice techniques engineered to help you communicate confidently and without apology in professional settings. You'll leave with an understanding of how to leverage your voice in order to successfully advocate for yourself and your ideas. Particular focus will be spent on how to harness the power of tone, breath, and physical presence in order to command any room you enter.


Key takeaways:

• Identify unconscious behaviors that undermine your authority

• Build executive presence

• Diffuse nerves

• Learn how to command a room

• Understand your unique communication style

• Improve vocal command and control

• Understand how to prepare to speak authentically in public
