Speak to be Heard: Why Presence Matters and How to Master It

This event has reached capacity and is no longer accepting event registrations.

Is your communications style supporting your career goals? Do you need better strategies for projecting confidence and being “heard” in discussions, meetings or public speaking situations?

The physical art of spoken communication affects our daily interactions, which determine the trajectory of our careers. As women, we are affected by others’ biases and expectations, as well as by our own, often culturally-derived behaviors.

The 7 October NY/NJ Regional Seminar with leader Chiara Motley of GK Training and Communications offers a unique opportunity to network and learn collaboratively with other healthcare businesswomen.

Chiara brings a multidisciplinary perspective to her extensive experience in coaching and entrepreneurial development. Her seminar features useful insights and simple, reliable techniques that can help anyone come across better in any situation.

Don’t miss this opportunity to spend an afternoon honing one of your most critical career skills.
