Refine and deepen your ability to successfully express yourself in an intensive full-day course with expert public speaking strategist Barbara Tannenbaum.

As women, we are leading in new ways and learning to activate the power of our voice when conveying ideas and catalyzing action. In this highly personalized workshop for leadership development, we devise strategies to strengthen our skills to communicate with increased confidence, clarity, and impact, covering topics such as gender and communication, nonverbal communication strategies, the use of voice to convey leadership, and specific persuasive strategies that influence audiences. We also address ways to overcome blocks to effective communication.

Each participant has the opportunity to deliver a prepared personal presentation that will be video recorded. Presentations may include introductions, mock interviews, fundraising pitches, or political appeals. Instruction includes personal coaching from Tannenbaum, as well as feedback from other participants.

Enrollment is limited to 10; please register early. This page registers you for July 13 (note: this course is also offered on July 14). Lunch will be served and is included in the tuition.
