 In a friendly setting you will learn about voice production, presentation stance and gestures, rate of speech, using pauses and confidence!

Participants will take turns presenting in front of the group, receive friendly feedback from Sanders and the group, and then repeat sections of their presentation. It's a fun atmosphere where you can build your presentation confidence.

All registrants should be prepared to present. This could be a presentation or talk you've given previously or a new one you are preparing. Slides or other supplemental materials are not necessary.
