And when you set yourself apart, you can accelerate your career. You can literally skyrocket yourself to the top. Public speaking is one of the skills that every woman in business needs to be able to do.
CBS12 – Luli Ortiz >> With many people speaking over Zoom now, I believe that public speaking can be a little bit more complicated with the glitches and everything, but what can you tell people; what can they do to stay confident when looking at that screen?
AmondaRose Igoe >> So it’s a really common challenge, and I want people to think of somebody that they feel really comfortable with – somebody that makes them feel at ease – whoever is their best friend. And then imagine that person. Imagine that you’re talking to them. When you do that, you are more confident in your delivery. Your words come out clearer, and she’ll leave that meeting with a feel good experience.

AmondaRose Igoe >> Absolutely. One of the things that’s super important for women in particular is to share their story, but many of them don’t know how to do it effectively. And when that happens, they might lose their audience, they might not know when to tell it, how to tell it…so I’m going to be covering that as well as costly closing mistakes that people make.
