#var:page_name# cover

Your palms start to sweat. Your mind races. Your hands shake. You have an idea and you want to share it, but what if no one likes it? What if it’s ignored? Or worse, what if someone says you’re wrong?

Speaking up can be a terrifying experience, especially if you’re shy or lacking a position of authority. How do you gain the confidence to raise your hand in meetings, advocate for yourself when speaking to your boss, share your ideas in a team, or even give a talk on stage?

Join us for this exciting workshop and learn how to build courage, gain confidence, and present yourself with conviction through a series of individual and small group exercises. Find out the steps to express yourself with authenticity and discover how powerful you really are. Who knows, you might just surprise yourself!

Key takeaways include how to:

- Build courage to raise your hand and ask for what you want
- Gain confidence in your voice and ideas
- Present yourself with conviction, even if you’re unsure of yourself

Our speaker for the evening will be Angela Lussier, an award-winning speaker, five-time author, two-time TEDx presenter, and CEO and founder of the Speaker Sisterhood, a network of speaking clubs that help women discover, awaken, and create their voice through the art of public speaking. Angela is the host of Claim the Stage, a public speaking podcast for women rated #1 on the inspiring podcasts list by Forbes in 2017. She is a contributor to Huffington Post and her work has been featured on ABC, NBC, Forbes, Virgin, and Entrepreneur. Her motto: "Stop waiting. Start creating."

This event is FREE for YPWA Worcester members and $10 for non-members, so bring along a friend or coworker that could use a little help finding their voice!
