If you want to become a better public speaker, we have just the workshop for you next Thursday October 3rd. Plus the list of Diwali Bazaar vendors.

Fear of Public Speaking?

Workshop for Leaders
Next Thursday, we have created an event for anyone who has ever wanted to be a better an able bodied public speaker and command a room. Plus a podcast for anyone who has ever asked themselves, how can I be more?

In-person workshop Thursday 6-8pm
Great public speakers attract opportunities. Why? Speaking makes you visible. You’re in front of the room, so that’s rather obvious. But the fact is that your credibility is enhanced. You become an expert. Next Thursday, LadyDrinks member and PROFESSIONAL SPEAKER Robyn Hatcher teaches “Investigating Your Signature Speech.”
We will talk about the ability to influence others. We will talk about persuasion, taking people from one point and moving them to another.

I gave a keynote to 1600 women hoteliers in San Diego this past April. Through that opportunity, I met so many wonderful and giving South Asian business women, including Silpa Patel. What I admire most her is her transparency. She has struggled with clinical depression and anxiety. Today she is in business development with Stigma Zero, a unique online training program she designed to help companies of all sizes end the stigma of mental illness in the workplace. And, given her long affiliation with the hospitality industry, she’s made the resource available on Marriott’s platform. This week’s LadyDrinks Member Spotlight is on Silpa Patel.
