About this Event

How many times are we asked about our business, and instead of giving an enthusiastic, well-crafted response, we "ummm" our way through that opportunity?

Here's a chance to get specific about what it is that you do or sell, why it's important, and why somebody else should be interested.

In this 2-hour online workshop, Megan Hamilton of ubu skills will teach attendees the fundamentals excellent public speaking to present yourself like the boss that you are.

As women entrepreneurs, we face specific challenges, and we're going to talk about that.

The skills we'll develop in this workshop will allow you to find new ways to courageously build your confidence, speak with power and let the world know what you're all about!

Note: the Zoom link for this workshop will be emailed the day before the event.
