Speak Up & Be Heard: How to Speak Up at Work Without Fear of Being Judged – Hosted by WEST

September 28 @ 12:00 pm1:00 pm

Have you considered how your fear of being judged for speaking up is negatively impacting your career?

The 2019 McKinsey Women in the Workplace report, which surveyed 329 companies & more than 68,000 employees, found that 50% of the surveyed women experienced being interrupted or spoken over, and 38% had others take credit for their ideas.

Whether you’re speaking up in a virtual meeting, presenting an idea to your boss or giving a presentation to your team, speaking confidently is the only way to truly be heard & achieve the goals you wish to accomplish in your career.

Yet, it can be scary. All eyes are on you and only you. You want to make sure you don’t say the wrong thing or offend anybody but at the same time, you don’t want to sit in silence because you’re afraid to speak up and then later kick yourself for not sharing what’s on your mind.

So, as a professional woman in your field, how do you speak up with CONFIDENCE without the fear of being judged by your superiors or your peers?

When you join me in my free virtual workshop, you will receive methods that I’ve shared in training over 20,000 career professionals in 30 cities internationally, to speak up & be heard so that you can receive the visibility that you deserve.

In this virtual workshop, you will learn:

  • How to bypass your inner critic & speak up without judging yourself so that you can freely express your ideas & be heard.
  • How to speak with confidence, even when under pressure, so that you can share your talents & be recognized for them.
  • How to stop sabotaging your voice, so that you can advocate for what you want in your career, especially when it counts the most.

Speaker

Mary Cheyne began her career as a socially awkward computer programmer who hid behind her desk because she was too self-conscious. But today, as a World Champion of Public Speaking first runner-up, out of 25,000 contestants from 14 countries, she is proof that transformation is possible. By understanding that becoming GREAT at public speaking isn’t just about the techniques of how to be a good speaker, rather it starts with discovering how to trust yourself first. Especially how to embrace the yin and yang of your feminine and masculine energy that allows you to show up powerfully in your communication and presentation, even in situations that would typically feel intimidating. Through her training and coaching, she has taught this curriculum to over 20,000 people in over 30 cities internationally. This has allowed her to powerfully serve her mission of developing heart-centered, confident women who lead with empathy, not ego. Her unique approach to presenting is what got Mary invited to speak on a TEDx stage. The video of her talk currently has over 275,000 views. Mary is also the best-selling author of the book “Present Yourself in Public Speaking – Tell Your Inner Critic to SHUT UP! And the Real You to SPEAK UP!”.
