Women Leadership Council presents: How to Articulate Your Awesome

June 20, 2018

You aren't a robot so why should you sound like one when you introduce yourself?

We buy everything on emotion and justify on fact, any marketer can tell you this. But what about people? How do you answer the question “What do you do?” Most people answer with just facts. Yet every decision made about you and your opportunities is made in a room you’re not in. And in a world where the line between humanity and technology is getting blurrier by the day, why are we still sounding like robots, why are we just giving the facts? Using both comedy and facts Joanna shares her ideas. Known for “live coaching” audience members she teaches them to walk.

Learn how to articulate your awesome from Joanna Bloor, Founder and CEO of Amplified Lab and Ted Speaker as part of this Women's Leadership Council event.
