Presentation Topic: Powerful Words Make Powerful Leaders

You want to be a leader, but you are reserved or quiet or don’t quite know how to get your passion across to the people whom you hope to inspire to follow you. Join this powerful session to learn how to enhance or develop your ability to communicate powerfully. This is not an NLP course, nor is it about learning how to manipulate people with your words. Instead, this is an experiential, hands-on seminar in which you will learn how to translate your passion into powerful words, how to get your message out there, and how to communicate a powerful message with a powerful style.
