Business communication and voice coaching workshops and keynote
To succeed in business, you need to ‘make your mark’, in other words make a positive, noticeable impact. What you say and how you say it is key to this.
Make Your Mark with Susan Room®
Everyone can make their mark. Yet many don't - perhaps because they lack confidence, think they don’t have ‘presence’, fear speaking up or don't like the sound of their voice when they do.
My Make Your Mark with Susan Room® workshops and keynote tackle these self-limiting beliefs head-on. Highly interactive and content-rich, they offer a whistle-stop tour of mindset, body language, speech and voice, leaving participants with a powerful toolkit they can use straightaway to feel, look and sound confident especially when under pressure.
