Good on Your Feet! 

A two-day workshop on dynamic speaking skills

from The Eloquent Woman

You want to be able to do more than just read your speech--or your slides.  When you get an unexpected question or a challenge, you want to look confident, not frozen with fear because you're suddenly off-script. This two-day intensive workshop will give you the tools and hands-on practice you need to become a more dynamic--and effective--speaker, whether you're speaking up in a meeting or giving a major speech.  You'll leave feeling better prepared and more confident, and able to be "good on your feet" in a wide range of speaking situations.

Limited to just 16 participants, the workshop will give you ample time to learn, ask questions and try out new skills and strategies in an intimate and encouraging environment, including:

  • Dynamic starts--why you need them and how to create them
  • The 3 Rs of dynamic presenting: Ready, Relaxed and Resilient
  • Ready with effective planned messages that help you go with the flow--but get your content in
  • Relaxed movements, gestures and mindsets of dynamic speaking
  • Resilient and graceful ways with Q&A, audience needs and mishaps
  • Live practice and critique to help you see and hear what your audience sees and hears
  • Advice on putting it all together, using The Eloquent Woman's checklist for the whole speaker

The workshop will take place from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm on Wednesday, November 3 and Thursday, November 4 at the National Press Club's Zenger Room, conveniently located near the Metro Center stop on the Metro Red Line.  Continental breakfast, break refreshments and lunch are included in the registration fee, as well as materials, fact sheets and additional followup material.   Registration is $1,495.00; a 10% discount is available to members of Washington Women in Public Relations, for $1,345.00.  Subscribers to the don't get caught newsletters receive 25% off, at $1120.00.
