Get a Head Start on 2019: How to Up Your Public Speaking Game!
Kit Pang, Founder, Boston Speaks
We all say that we need to work on our public speaking skills but it falls to the bottom of the list. This is the perfect opportunity to spend some time with your colleagues brushing up on your skills and learning some new tips and techniques. The session will also address ways to improve your “off the cuff” impromptu speaking, a must have skill for every manager. There will be plenty of time for questions and interaction and of course some holiday cheer!

Lunch will be served family style.
