A wise woman once said, “What difference does it make if you have a seat at the table if you don’t effectively use it?” The literal and proverbial “seat at the table” represents your ability to have a voice in your organization and successfully influence others.

As women, however, many of us struggle to find our voices in the workplace.
This webinar will show you how to examine key internal and external challenges to strive to make your voice heard, how to maximize your influence before, during and after presenting your ideas, and how to discuss actionable strategies to boost your confidence and improve your leadership presence as you engage with others. With increased confidence, communication skills and political savvy, you can maximize your seat at the table.
