Monday, December 4th, Communication Skills to Elevate Your Personal Presence
Do you apologize for things that aren’t really your fault? Do you find yourself saying “um” or “like” while telling a story or making a presentation?

At this meeting, you can learn how to use your speech and body language to become a more effective communicator.

Tuesday, February 6th, Building Your Confidence
Confidence seems so easy when we think about it. Yet when re-entry gets real – at a networking event, an informational interview, or when it’s time to talk about an actual job – we often find ourselves falling into patterns that minimize how people see our talents and drive. Learn how to banish self-limiting thoughts and position yourself to share your most confident, engaging self in any situation. We will also discuss how to confidently address the question “So, what do you do?”
