We all want to be taken seriously. We want the public, the media, funders, and stakeholders to know how passionate, knowledgeable, and confident we are in our work. But why is it so hard to pull off when speaking in public? Even when you’ve finely crafted your message, those words on paper just aren’t cutting it. The secret is you. Specifically, your body, and what your body is saying—whether you realize it or not. Your eyes, your hands, how you hold yourself—all these communicate something. We all inhabit different bodies, and we’re here to say *any* body can master speaking, media hits, pitches and other public appearances by using specific tools, techniques and training. We will show you how.
