Even if you feel confident in most situations, you might find yourself losing it when it really matters—in an important meeting, or on a date. Presence—whether at work, in public speaking, or in your personal life—can sound intangible, but it plays a crucial role in feeling and appearing confident.

This workshop offers tools to learn and grow your presence to increase your confidence in all situations. Participants learn:

- Why vulnerability is a bigger part of confidence than you may realize
- Body language techniques that look and feel confident
- How growing your connection skills also grows presence
- A step by step method to grow presence, and to show up with it when it's critical
- How to apply these techniques to professional situations like meetings and speaking
