Networking: Strong Coffee, Strong Women – Using Public Speaking to Boost your Brand

Public speaking can be scary and intimidating, but if you’re starting or growing your business, it can be one of the most important elements of your marketing strategy. Presenting before an audience positions you as an expert in your field, showcases your brand, and invites follow-up and referrals (which leads to more sales).

Whether you're a novice or have given presentations before, whether you want to speak to 10, 100 or 1,000 people, whether your stage will be at a business group, industry conference, non-profit event or pitch competition, you'll learn how to find your signature idea, structure your presentation with stories, create an emotional connection with your audience, and confidently talk about what you do and why you do it.
