Is your fear of speaking depriving you of career and leadership opportunities?

Cure your Speaker’s Anxiety Workshops

Come to one or more of these workshops offered on Saturday mornings this fall:

September 23rd
October 21st
November 18th
From 9-12

This workshop is highly interactive, so come prepared to participate.

I enjoy showing my clients that presenting can not only be survived, but it can be lots of fun. Consequently I structure my workshops to be full of pleasurable activities. We will analyze what is causing speaker’s anxiety and then launch into a series of exercises showing how to release the anxiety and connect with audiences. Participants will get lots and lots of practice.

The fee is $95.00.
The location is the Mercer Island Community and Event Center (Calkins Room).
