“Present Yourself Authoritatively – Command Respect, Communicate Confidence, & Convey Competence”
(Public Speaking and Presentation Skills for Small Business Owners)
Sylvia Henderson, Program Facilitator

Program Description: When you present yourself authoritatively, everything about you—the words you say, how you use your voice and body, your positioning, how you look, your presence, and first impressions of you—communicates confidence and respect. Get your message across as effectively and professionally as the image you wish to convey about yourself and your business.

In this session you will:

  • Discover a process and receive supporting tools for creating and presenting your messages effectively;
  • Explore behaviors that convey a confident presence;
  • Practice public speaking skills.

Remember that we form our impressions of each other by how we convey ourselves and our messages. Command respect, communicate confidence, and convey competence when you give presentations.
