Workshop 3: Public Speaking - March 23
Expanding on the previous public speaking fundamentals and workplace communication workshops, we will tackle preparation for crafting an effective presentation and learn tips for speaking in front of larger audiences.
Leigh Wall is an enthusiastic and accomplished public speaker who, over the last three years, has honed her skill and grown her love of helping others become comfortable and shine in front of a crowd.
A drastic career change from legal administrator to apprentice truck and transport mechanic empowered Leigh and sparked a passion for encouraging other women to break through barriers in non-traditional roles. As a student of Vancouver Community College’s heavy mechanical trades program, Leigh was invited to speak on behalf of skilled trade workers. Leigh’s media interest and public speaking engagements snowballed from there.
Leigh’s passion lies in sharing her experiences with other women to empower them to discover their own passion.

Workshop 4: Networking - April 13
Networking might be one of the scariest cases of public speaking anxiety. How to say hi and introduce yourself when you have a glass of wine in your hand? What questions to ask? How to get out of the conversation? These and all of your questions will be answered in our final workshop of the series.
We would love to see you for the whole series. However, if you can't, we would still love for you to try out one of our workshops! Select "Indivdual Workshop" and then the one you can attend!
