We have all felt vulnerable before an audience. Positive Communications training helps novice as well as more experienced speakers project with confidence around a conference table or in a convention hall. We will help you develop your signature style so you can present your best self, connect with the audience, and achieve your goals.
The first step is analyzing your speaking strengths and weaknesses so the training workshop is tailored to your needs and interests. On-camera practice helps you improve eye contact, body language, and vocal control. Learn how to control anxiety with positive visualization, proper breathing, and relaxation exercises.
