Baby Steps to Speaking Confidence - Monthly Practice Lab for Beginner Speakers
Nervous about speaking in public? Wish there was a safe place to practice, test out ideas and get expert feedback? There is! :) Half way between private coaching and open mic, the purpose of this evening is to create a safe space for regular practice so that you can develop your skills and receive expert feedback and coaching. This is a space to be selfish. To experiment. To try new things without fear of failure. Speaking spots are limited. Your spot is not confirmed until you have RSVP'd at Bring anything you're working on from a speech, to a song, to a monologue from acting class, or an idea you need help hashing out. If you don't have a speaking topic, don't worry, your voice and speaking coach Danielle Benzon has plenty of spontaneous speaking topics designed to help you connect to who you are and speak your mind from your heart. There are ten stage time spots available. Each participant will have up to 5 minutes on stage and up to 10 minutes of feedback and/or coaching from voice and speech coach Danielle Benzon. Tickets: $25 online or $30 cash at the door for speakers. $10 to audit. Doors will open at 6:15pm for people to get settled, we start at 6:30pm sharp. If you're going to be late, no worries, but make sure we know so we can have someone unlock the door for you. Super excited to see what the evening will bring! :)

What we're about

This Meetup is about building authentic human communication: how to truly listen and how to speak to be heard. Sponsored by Inspired Coaching ( there will be an opportunity at each Meetup to learn more about the workshops and coaching that Danielle facilitates through the company.

The Unleash Your Voice Seminar Series will end its current format with the last event "Cowardly to Charismatic" on September 20th, 2016. As of October 2016, the seminars will be reimagined as a three part workshop, once a week for three weeks. This format will allow time for more audience interaction and participants will get the opportunity to take exercises home to practice in preparation to build upon that information in the next week. A minimal fee will be charged for the three part workshop to ensure commitment to attendance and to help cover the cost of the room.

Until then: The Unleash Your Voice Seminar Series is aimed at entrepreneurs, sales representatives and anyone who wants to build their confidence speaking. It consists of three free interactive lectures that include useful tips and information about your personal sound system and how to identify and overcome the most common harmful habits in public (and private) speaking.
