Join Auckland GWN and Leadership Development Centre (LDC) and facilitator Brenda Ratcliff for this interactive workshop designed specially to leave you feeling great about your ability to speak in public.

We know it when we see it – someone who can speak with such confidence that their message shines through, and you want to listen to every word. In this online workshop you will find your own confidence to speak and organise your thoughts so that you can communicate your key points with clarity.

Brenda will cover how to build rapport with your audience, so that you can read the room and present in a dynamic way that plays to your special gifts and talents.

Part of speaking with confidence is having the ability to adapt your message and style to different groups, large and small, and be effective without using PowerPoint, using proven tools that work 'in the moment'.
