Impact Series: Speaking with Influence

Craft Yourself

Communication is the human medium for connection and we are the message. The first part of this 5-week series provides space to tune into our presence as we embody and send our message. Rich with experiential techniques and hands-on application invites participants to harness the power of Nonverbal Communication, Active Listening, built confidence, and authentic engagement to infuse influence and empower overall communication.

Craft Your Message

Building upon our Crafted Selves, we will master the art + science of public speaking. Participants will be equipped to craft the content of their message, deliver it with confidence and ease to make a lasting impact.

Whether you are selling a product or pitching your organization’s vision to potential investors, effective communication is imperative. Speaking with Influence is so much more than a flashy powerpoint and buzz words – it is centered on authentic engagement, confidence and active listening as you craft your message for powerful impact.

Abbey Johnston leverages her background in psychology & communication along with her leadership coaching and public speaking career to lead the intimate group in a highly experiential offering. Each week, participants will utilize the techniques and skills shared to make a presentation to the group for feedback.

Participants will walk away from this program with transformed public speaking skills and a greater ability to engage with others, communicate effectively, and bring a positive impact into their work environment and world.
