Prepping Your People to Get Up in Front of Others

How to Help Your Professional Staff to Overcome Fears of Public Speaking

Long considered one of the worst phobias, speaking in front of others is an essential skill in acquiring new business for A/E/C firms and building your firm’s brand.  This webinar will give you helpful tools and techniques and show you how to build confidence when presenting to co-workers, clients, and other professionals. In addition, you will become a more supportive marketing partner through active listening and helpful critique that will encourage your co-workers to become articulate professionals and overcome their fear of public speaking.
