Whether you’re in a meeting with a funder, on the phone, around the proverbial “water cooler,” at a conference, or anywhere else: your ability to speak with confidence will drive your career forward — just as a lack of confidence will frustratingly hold you back. In this session, Christine Clapp of Spoken with Authority will give you a set of powerful insights and practical strategies that will rapidly enhance your professional presence. Get ready to develop your speaking skills in a way that will transform your career — and even change your life!

In this session, you will:
• Explore the five elements of professional presence
• Assess personal strengths and weaknesses with regard to body language, vocal quality, facial expressions, filler words, and eye contact
• Identify strategies for leveraging strengths and mitigating weaknesses

Bring your questions...and your lunch!
Free for members; $15.00 for nonmembers
