“Own the room - Speak Like a Leader ”
Some professional business women unintentionally speak softly, sound young, nasal or speak in a pitch that is too high, positioning them to be discredited because characteristics like these do not radiate confidence or credibility. Many non-verbal messages are sent through how speech and voice characteristics are applied.  Learn to send the right messages by strategically learning how to speak with engaging intonation and lower vocal tone qualities. Discover how to have command of your voice and speak in a style that will persuade, lead and motivate.

As young women, we were taught to work hard, get good grades, be kind to everyone and have a positive attitude, and success will come.
