Break out of the kid talk and find your grown-up voice.
You might be an ideal employee, or a rock star business owner. You may be creative, innovative, organized and skilled, but there is no way around it. If you are going to venture into business for yourself, you are going to have to talk to other people.
If you are shy, lack confidence in your communication skills, or seem to have forgotten how to speak “grown-up” since becoming a mom, then this is the show for you! Lets brush up on those conversation skills and get comfortable talking again.
For this show, I am bringing on a dynamic guest, Robyn Hatcher, the founder of SpeakEtc., a communication and presentation-skills training and coaching company that helps clients develop presence through communication. We’ll also talk about how to polish the non-verbal elements of communication – body language, gestures, vocal quality and unlike many other presentation coaches Robyn works equally on the verbal skills– word choice, content and organization so that clients become more powerful and engaging communicators. Her unique approach identifies and works with client’s strengths, core values, and passion.
Robyn Hatcher is owner of SpeakEtc., a presentation and communication skills training company which provides group and one on one coaching to individuals, corporations and organizations. For the past 15 years, Robyn has helped thousands of business professionals from Deloitte & Touche, Allstate, the New York Public Library, Atlantis Health Plan, Ladies Who Launch, NYC Parks Department, and many more.
