BRYN FREEDMAN, an award-winning investigative reporter, TED Talks speaker coach and lifelong Story Teller, is offering three Public Speaking workshops for Bold Solutions Network Members. The workshop is a fun, skills-based, communication class that is good for both beginners and experienced speakers. Participants will learn the 5 secrets of EAS²E and find out the essential qualities that every speaker must possess. Speakers will learn how to “own the room,” they will discover why authenticity is king (or queen), how to handle curve ball questions, and how to make themselves unforgettable. Classes will be offered in three different locations (to be announced.) Class length is 90 minutes and can be attended in person or via Zoom. Note: Classes had originally been planned for March but have been postponed due to concerns about the Coronavirus. Bold Solutions Network members will receive updated invitations when the classes are rescheduled.
