Fearless Public Speaking: Speak, Act And Look Like a Leader


with Bonnie Gross

When there are two people with the same skills entering a room, delivering a speech, or participating in a meeting– the person who looks, acts and sounds like a leader is the person most remembered. Make sure next time—it’s YOU! This class teaches you the skills not usually taught in traditional “presentation skills” courses; you will learn the secrets of how to speak, look and act like a leader. Being a calm, confident, impactful presenter starts before you write the first line - it starts with what and how you think. Learn the speaking skills of great public figures, such as John F. Kennedy and Steve Jobs, who have used their voices and speaking style to exude power and influence. (Approx. 12 hours.)
