I want to tell you a story about a student of mine named Julie.
Julie wasn’t thrilled with her job and wanted to make a change.
She chose to invest in her public speaking to help her interview better.
In my public speaking masterclass, we worked on sharing information using a specific framework. Every student shared a presentation that had a beginning, middle and end. Time and time again, she used that framework to share stories about her leadership in interviews.
Today, she is at ‘her dream job’ as National Sales Director at one of the top telecom companies in the country.
You will learn…
Step one. you will identify your role model. What are the six traits of your role model you admire?
Step two. Tell me a personal story about a time you demonstrated this trait.
Step three. Think about the takeaway. What did you learn about yourself as a result of this story? This is the gift for your audience.
Step four: You deliver your talk to the class for feedback.
We will rinse and repeat in each of the 7 classes. We will also feature a speaker at the top of each class, focused on YOUR pain points.
With this Masterclass you’ll get personalized development with Joya, a leading business news anchor in New York City.The sessions are limited to only seven professionals, to create a safe and inclusive environment for you to overcome your fears and master the art of public speaking.
I’ve made my living as a television anchor for 20 years. I covered the financial markets from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.
Daily, I interviewed CEOs of Fortune 500 and 1000 companies who were ringing the opening or closing bell. Hourly, I delivered 2 minute reports, analyzing the markets.
I had to be concise.
I had to get YOU, the audience, to care about these 3 stock stories at this hour. And it was in front of a national audience.
I’ve given a TedTalk. I’ve spoken in front of 1600 women at a convention center. I’ve commanded the stage at the Apollo Theater in Harlem.
Do you know what it takes to quiet a room? I learned it. Now I’m going to teach it to you.
This class is for you if you like:
With my “Command a Room With Authority Masterclass,” I share a formula for storytelling. The reason for this formula is that we have 3 brains as human beings. Sharing *just data* or teaching engages two of our brains. A *story* engages all three.
It dates back to our ancestors and how they shared information around a campfire. They told —stories.
Class is 7 sessions. In each session, you will deliver a 2 minute presentation. This will be a personal story about your leadership and a time that you demonstrated a trait worthy of your role model.
Start thinking about the answers to these questions:
Your personal stories DO have a place in your leadership. This is the first time you are making yourself vulnerable and workshopping the RIGHT way to share them.
In each class, you will be presenting a 2 min talk. I will record it and play it back to you and to the class for feedback. At the end of the class, each student will deliver the same talk again, but this time, integrating the feedback from the class. This is how I run workshops with groups when I get called into corporates.
This is a 7 week public speaking course.

Saloua Benkhouya was VP at the Royal Bank of Canada. She had 2 of the top performing teams in the country. Over the course of class, she realized she is capable of doing so much more. She wanted to start a fund to change the way women invest in women. Just before the last class, she turned in her resignation to the bank. She is pursuing her dream.
Noelia is a physician’s assistant in the ER of one of the top teaching hospitals in the country. As you can imagine, life was hectic the last two years. She had a wellness business on the side, and introduced a meditation practice to her fellow doctors during the pandemic. It was so effective, that a white paper was drafted. She wrote me to say she was asked to present the white paper to 40 people the other day. Normally, she would have freaked out, but the class taught her confidence.
Today’s remote work culture is impacting women. While 70% of working women feel empowered by the flexibility of being able to work from home, a recent report by Catalyst shows that working outside the office could also hurt women’s chances of feeling seen and heard at work.
Catalyst conducted a survey of 1,100 U.S. working adults over the age of 18. 45% of women business leaders say it’s difficult for women to speak up in virtual meetings. One in five women say they’ve felt ignored or overlooked by colleagues during video calls. Additionally, three in five female employees say they feel like their prospects of getting a promotion are worse in their new remote work environment.
