Past NLL seminars:

“Fearless Public Speaking”
Don’t let panic stop you from speaking up or making presentations with confidence. From leaving a voice message on the phone to talking before large groups, you can learn to be a better, more polished public speaker no matter what your current skill level. In this seminar, you will be taught easy ways to overcome anxiety, techniques to speak well off the cuff, and how to get your ideas across verbally with poise in any setting. Topics include when to use gestures, humor and visual aids to add impact, and dealing with stage fright. Come ready to actively participate or simply listen and learn without any pressure to speak.

“Building a Powerful Personal Brand”
In today’s fast-paced society, many people prefer to take shortcuts instead of spending time to build a personal or company brand properly. In this session, attendees will identify and gain a deeper understanding of the power of perceptions, and to better align their brand with audience expectations. You will learn ways to use proven and modern public relations tools to build and manage their reputation, credibility and power.

Women and the Art of Negotiation: How to Get What You Want in Business
Negotiation is a skill that can be learned. It can also be practiced every day, especially in the business world but also in your personal life as well. From negotiating for better pay to solving difficult problems with customers or vendors, attendees will learn the three characteristics of successful negotiations and ways to hone their critical skills including decision-making and active listening.

Cost-Effective Marketing Ideas
Learn the Top 10 most effective, low- or no-cost ways to spread the word about your products and services, reinforce your brand, and attract customers.
