SPEAK UP

MASTER THE ART OF OWNING YOUR VOICE

THE WORLD MUST HEAR FROM WOMEN

 

Half of all women report being interrupted at work.

 

38% of women report others have stolen credit for their ideas.

 

When women leaders speak “too much,” their competence is questioned.

How many more contributions will be missed if women’s voices aren’t equally heard?

 

While there’s more the world must do to listen, we believe in playing the cards we’ve been dealt while we change the game.

 

That’s why this program focuses on what you can control: owning your voice.

 

If you’re tired of feeling flustered, want to increase your off-the-cuff confidence, and learn to be a more assertive, authoritative speaker, this is the program for you.

IT’S TIME THE WORLD HEARS MORE FROM YOU.

“Storytelling has been a pain point of mine in interviews for years. I’ve lost so many opportunities by not mastering this speaking skill. Emilie’s advice absolutely altered the trajectory of my career. After working with Emilie on telling my story, my very next interview led to a second round with two different departments within the company!”
