The ability to speak on the spot is often seen as an innate gift, the talent of "natural-born" leaders. The truth is, it's a skill that can be learned—a skill that is quickly becoming a must-have for any female leader or any woman who wants to move ahead in her career.

In this webcast, Judith Humphrey provides clear, actionable guidance to help you reach your full leadership potential in all impromptu moments. The webcast will show you how to influence and inspire in meetings, elevator chats, corridor conversations, networking events, mentoring conversations, job interviews, and Q+As. All these are opportunities to shine and have your voice heard.

  • Discover the power of impromptu moments
  • Move from "winging it" to preparation

  • Master improv techniques that enable you to listen and respond
  • Strengthen your physical presence, including breath, voice and body language

While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
