Public Speaking: Get A's, Not Zzzzzz's

Learn to be prepared, polished, and powerful whenever you speak!

Good presentation skills can have a huge payoff. Whether it shows up in good teamwork, loyal leadership, training and development, or in a remarkable service oriented department, solid communication skills can make or break organizational goals. 

Key takeaways will be:

  • Techniques to use for holding an audience's attention better
  • Greater confidence in your ability to succeed in numerous aspects of public speaking
  • Specific steps to apply vocal variety (we’re all told to do it, but has anyone else ever told you how? And how specifically to use it effectively?)

About the Speaker: 

Milo Shapiro left fifteen years in I.T. to pursue his passion: applying improvisation to events like team building and motivational speeches, creating a fun way of learning business practices, communication skills, and personal development.
