This one-of-a-kind workshop will be facilitated by Fred Miller, renowned speaker, coach and author of No Sweat Public Speaking: How to Develop, Practice, and Deliver a ‘Knock Your Socks Off’ Presentation… With No Sweat!
We have all had it happen… you are at a chamber meeting, networking event, or seminar, and the leader says, “Before we get started, let’s go around the room and introduce ourselves. Tell us who you are and what you do. Give us your Elevator Speech.” Many of us start sweating when we hear those words because our “Elevator Speech” always seems to be a “work in progress.”
This workshop will show you, floor-by-floor, how to develop a great “Elevator Speech” for all audiences and time considerations. Unlike others, this is truly a hands-on workshop at which you are GUARANTEED to leave with an “Elevator Speech” that you will be proud to deliver!
In the words of Mr. Fred Miller, “Speaking Opportunities are Business, Career and Leadership Opportunities.”
The cost for this event is $65.00. Registration is required. Please contact the Chamber Office at (636) 717-0200 or CLICK HERE to register and pay online.
