Finding your voice and conquering public speaking

With Lexi Sekuless

6-8:30pm Thursdays

4 August – 8 September 2022

$360 per person

Includes all materials.

One of the first things we say to a loved one is it’s so great to hear your voice! From talking with friends to colleagues in small and big settings, we have so many feelings about our voices. Over 6 weeks we will go through each element of ‘being on show’ and being seen and heard with a range of exercises to equip you for any public speaking task. Those feelings will likely hang around, but by the end of each session you will have more tools to get your voice and message out there.
