For women only, bring stories, quotes, anecdotes, and questions to learn how to refine and use them to engage your listeners. You will have the opportunity to speak and receive expert feedback in a safe setting.
For Any Woman, Any Age who feels invisible, tongue-tied, or terrified when speaking. I am providing a safe space where you can learn and try out three key elements of fearless speaking. Through exercises and guided practice, you will (1) identify your unique style, (2) present ideas coherently, and (3) use gestures and movements to communicate ease and confidence.
GET THE FEEDBACK YOU WANT
I will tell you how you are doing with the degree of frankness you can want: no-holds-barred candid assessment, diplomatic suggestions, or encouraging comments.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE: Free meetings and For-fee classes
You can participate in two ways. I will offer free monthly large gatherings in Berkeley and small for-fee classes in Oakland, near MacArthur Bart.
For the monthly gatherings, we will do group exercises. Three to five women will have the opportunity to receive individual feedback.
For the small classes, we will focus on one key element of fearless speaking. All participants will have lots of time to try out techniques and to get extensive feedback. Classes can be taken in any order.
THREE FOR-FEE CLASSES: Take in any order
I offer three classes. (1) Create a distinctive style from your natural strengths. (2) Transform random thoughts into authoritative statements in 3 easy steps. (3) Project confidence with proven gestures.
