Have you ever been terrified to do a speaking event, presentation, or even just networking?
People want to connect with you on a human level. When you're approachable and accessible, people are attracted to you like a magnet.
It takes a lot to get up in front of that many people. But it also takes a lot to get comfortable even just talking with two.
Today’s guest, Lisa Braithwaite, helps corporate employees and entrepreneurs to get comfortable with every type of presentation and with all sizes of audiences, including social media. You don't wanna miss your big break!
In this episode, we talk about:
