“Using Public Speaking to
Multiply Your Business Success”
presented by Mary Cheyne

Date: December 3, 2018
Time: 5:30 – 8:30 p.m., dinner included

Whether you are a new or seasoned consultant, solo professional, or entrepreneur, you will benefit greatly by improving your public speaking skills. When you are presenting to a group of potential clients or pitching to investors or lenders, you need to get your message across effectively to be successful.

Common concerns you might face before and during a presentation can include: Do I come across as knowledgeable and credible? Am I being engaging enough and generating enough interest in my prospects? Can they tell I’m nervous? Do I sound too “salesy”?

In this presentation, you will learn:

· Where and how to get speaking engagements.
· How to speak powerfully and authentically under pressure and win clients.
· How to bypass the number one saboteur in public speaking, your inner critic.
· How to own your power as an expert and be able to translate your brilliance on stage.

Attend this workshop to break through to a new level of public speaking that will get you noticed!

SWEP-MA has partnered with Click & Pledge, a company specializing in serving non-profit organizations, to provide secure online payment processing for our members' convenience. We're sure you'll like the convenience of this new option we've added.

Note: Credit card transactions processed through SWEP-MA's Click & Pledge's payment processing system occasionally incur an extra $1.00 - $2.00 charge that appears on your credit card statement as a foreign transaction fee. Whether you are charged this extra fee depends on which of Click & Pledge's transaction-processing gateways your credit card company puts the charge through. Click & Pledge is an American company; SWEP-MA is an American organization; and the transactions are conducted solely in U.S. dollars, however neither SWEP-MA nor Click & Pledge charges the fee and neither can prevent it. If you receive a charge for this foreign transaction fee, you should be able to have it reversed by asking your credit card provider to remove it. We apologize for this occasional inconvenience.
