During this 3-hour workshop we'll be helping professionals and entrepreneurs with their brief introductions for work conferences, professional lunches, and other networking events.

We'll show you how to - 

  • Hone your message down to 1 powerful minute (or less)
  • Say what you really want to say (while sharing who you truly are)
  • Succeed in a challenging space
  • Connect to your listeners

Learn how to believe you are enough so you can take center stage, command attention, and move people!
