Whether you struggle to speak with confidence or you are looking to fine-tune your public speaking skills, this session will help you enhance your presentation and public speaking skills. Our accomplished speaker, Michelle Devlin, will guide you through some fundamental skills and help you find the confidence you need to enhance and foster your public speaking & leadership skills, all while connecting with like-minded businesswomen.
