Welcome 2020!

Join the Women of Woburn on January 15th for lunch, casual networking and the opportunity to meet Mary Cheyne, author, trainer and public speaking expert.

As a woman in business, you benefit greatly by improving your public speaking skills. Whether you’re speaking in a one-on-one meeting with a prospect or presenting to a group of potential clients, you need to be effective in getting your message across. 


Common concerns you might face before & during a presentation or conversation can include: Do I come across as knowledgeable and credible? Am I being engaging enough and generating enough interest in my prospects? Can they tell I’m nervous? Do I sound too “salesy”?


This presentation is based on the Mary’s Best Selling book “Present” Yourself in Public Speaking – Tell Your Inner Critic to SHUT UP! And the Real You to SPEAK UP! You will receive effective tools to bypass your inner critic and allow your authentic and most confident self to shine through.


Break through to a new level of speaking that will get you noticed!


In this talk, you will learn:

  • How to speak powerfully & authentically so you will get noticed & win clients.
  • How to bypass your number 1 saboteur in public speaking, your inner critic.
  • How to own your power as an expert & have your brilliance come across in a conversation without sounding “salesy”.
