We all get nervous when talking during a board meeting, leading a webinar, negotiating for a raise, or speaking onstage (or Zoom!). But the key to powerful somatic speaking is to treat it like an athlete would, and train the body to perform with muscle memory. This turns off our “lizard brain”, allows us to get comfortable, and gets our bodies to communicate in sync with our words. When our body and our message are consistent, our audience can truly “hear” us. And if not, they can’t!
In this session, Heather will teach practical skills to help beginner speakers, as well as anyone who wishes to advance their skills, become public speakers who make an impression. More importantly, it teaches everyone, regardless of their background, how to speak up and be heard. Body Language for Powerful Somatic Speaking is a fun and dynamic presentation, during which participants will learn the tactics that will lead to career growth, deliver memorable messages, and help everyone overcome the most common public speaking barrier—fear! In a truly equitable world, all voices deserve to be heard. Powerful Somatic Speaking will help make this a reality.
