Communicating with Confidence

We often take our voices for granted. If your position requires you to speak effectively, and present ideas, then it plays a crucial role in the success of your career.

Why this course is for you

This 3 hour workshop is for anyone wanting to gain an understanding of using their voice more efficiently.

You will learn, in a safe and relaxed environment, how to feel more comfortable when presenting, and more relaxed when people’s focus is on you. You will be taught how to build rapport and engage your audience.
