About This Workshop

In today’s world, it’s critical to optimize the face- to – face opportunities you get to sell yourself. Whether interviewing for an actual job, pitching an idea, or simply engaging in casual conversation, you have to know how to communicate your skills and experience in a compelling and memorable way. If you feel more tongue-tied than fluent in your ability to answer questions, speak persuasively, and tell your stories- this class can help. We’ll cover strategies to optimally prepare for important conversations, to craft stories and messages that stick, and to help ensure your interviews are infused with a spirit of control, achievement, and gravitas.
