Professional Development Leadership Workshop:
Public speaking is a great way to catapult your career. Unfortunately, people hold themselves back because they don't know what to share, they don’t think they have enough expertise, or they're frightened. We get it, and we're here to help.

In this workshop, Poornima and Karen will help you create a lightning talk.

You’ll learn how to: • Overcome stage fright • Extract your expertise • Identify key takeaways • Engage audiences through storytelling. Please note you must register for workshop onsite.
