It’s been said that 85% of a person’s financial success is due to their ability to communicate, negotiate, and lead. And since your company is run by people, it makes sense that your company’s financial success is dependent on those same abilities.
Present Like a Pro: Speak with Confidence transforms participants’ abilities to leverage communication on behalf of themselves, their employer, and their community.

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.
Investing in staff personal and professional development results in longevity of employment, loyalty, and better functioning team. Employees who participate in Present Like a Pro receive tremendous value!

Not only do I have more confidence crafting and sharing a story but what I learned from other students helped me too.
Rebecca has a method that is very easy to follow and understand. I highly recommend her program!
Rebecca sees the power in helping others find their voice, their confidence, and the vast positive improvements it has on their lives.
