[LIMITED to 10 members. See below for REQUIREMENT]
Please join us for our first workshop series on Wednesday, April 3 6:30-8pm at WeWork 311 W 43rd St in Midtown!
So often we have great content but our voice and speaking styles do not match so we miss the chance to really engage. Elements such as cultural or personal speaking styles, clarity of the words, accent, and tone will often affect the way you are perceived by the audience or listener. This workshop is especially focused on speakers of English as a foreign language who want to learn techniques on how to warm up your voice, learn the key elements of how to bring your words to life, and be confident in the clarity of your speech and voice. Engage in exercises and have a chance to ask questions and get feedback.
Who is this for: Entrepreneurs and business leaders from Japan (English as a second language)
Requirement: Have 2-3 minute pitch ready to present for feedback
