  • 1. Public Communications Training for Women

2. why womenspeak? Public communication - whether by way of a media appearance, a company presentation or a speech for an event - is an instrument of incalculable inuence. Yet current research shows that women still struggle both to gain access to it and to thrive within its sphere.WOMENSPEAK Training was established to address this lack of parity by way of better communications training. We have tailored traditional communication programs to meet the specic needs of the female communicator in a variety of public communications and advocacy settings. 3. why womenspeak? "Judgments about condence can be inferred only from the way people present themselves, and much of that presentation is in the form of talk... In U.S. businesses, where men's speaking style dominates, women may be ignored, interrupted, and passed over for promotions - even if they're highly competent."The Power of Talk: Who Gets Heard and Why" Deborah Tannen Harvard Business Review Figures from the Women's Media Center show that globally, news stories including women tally less than 15% and are often only about appearance and family status. 4. who we are Corporate training and development firm Founded 2007 Independently owned Recent clients: Senior Executives, Business Owners,Journalists, Researchers, Authors,Public Relations Professionals,Teachers and Administrators, FinancialAdvisors, Social Workers, CommunityLeaders, Volunteers, Organizers andAdvocates, Publicists, Marketing andPR Departments, OrganizationPresidents, Bloggers and Entrepreneurs. 5. recent client list employees/representatives of: 6. staff tenure trainingemployees/representatives from following companies/organizations: 7. capabilities media training public speaking training communications consultingexecutive training accent reduction 8. capabilities media training * Message Development & Delivery * Constructing Development & Delivery * Interviews (radio, phone, on-camera, web casts, etc.) * Presentation for Camera: Wardrobe, Make-up & Hair * Speech Coaching * Individual Work Sessions/Feedback "WOMENSPEAK Training gave me valuable advice on communicating effectively in different media.
