Description:
Whether attorneys are in a virtual meeting, on the phone, around the proverbial “water cooler,” or anywhere else: their ability to speak and communicate with confidence to colleagues, clients and other stakeholders will enhance their practice — just as a lack of confidence will frustratingly hold them back. In this session, participants will learn a set of powerful insights and practical strategies that will rapidly enhance their core communication skills and oral advocacy — whether they are speaking online or in person, to an audience of one, several, or many. Get ready to develop speaking skills in a way that will elevate presence and expand influence!

Participants will:
  • Explore the elements of communication skills with photo and video examples
  • Assess personal strengths and weaknesses with regard to body language, vocal quality, facial expressions, filler words, eye contact, and physical setting
  • Start enhancing strengths and mitigating weaknesses

Speakers:
Christine Clapp, President, Spoken with Authority
David Henderson,
Of Counsel, Ellwanger Law PLLC
