Toastmasters: Mary Cheyne, 3/27/18 at 6:30 PM
Despite popular belief, people’s top fear is not Public Speaking; it is Public Judgement. This workshop will provide effective tools to bypass your inner critic and allow your authentic and most confident self to shine. Break through to a new level of public speaking that will get you noticed on the job and stand out in a crowd. This is a highly interactive workshop. Participants will receive invaluable quality feedback and tips from world-class speaker Mary Cheyne.
Mary Cheyne, Public Speaker and Coach, was runner-up at the 2009 Toastmasters World Championship of Public Speaking, featuring 25,000 contestants from 14 countries. She has trained more than 15,000 people in over 25 cities and coached hundreds of individuals on how to communicate clearly & authentically. Mary is the author of the self-published book “Present” Yourself in Public Speaking.
Mary will provide a hands-on workshop on speaking and communication skills, Tuesday, March 27, 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM in the downstairs Eaton Meeting Room at the library.
