Office hours sessions are provided between weeks 5 and  6 for participants to practice and receive professional feedback. These sessions include coaching by Rebecca and the use of innovative (and super fun) artificial intelligence software to track facial expressions, eye contact, filler words, and non-inclusive language.

Rebecca worked with a broad segment of our staff, many with no public speaking experience, on a journey in confidence building, teamwork, team bonding, and personal growth. We also had a barrel full of fun, and came away with a much deeper sense of connection with and understanding of our co-workers.
