Whether you’re on a videoconference call, at a hybrid meeting, on the phone, at the office, by the proverbial water cooler, or anywhere else: your ability to speak confidently will drive your career forward — just as a lack of presence will frustratingly hold you back.

  • Assess personal strengths and areas for improvement with regard to body language, vocal quality, facial expressions, filler words, eye contact, and physical setup
  • Develop a speaking toolkit so you can make purposeful decisions about how to show up and add value in workplace speaking contexts
