Why An ART OF INFLUENCE public speaking masterclass is Important:
Today’s remote work culture is impacting women. While 70% of working women feel empowered by the flexibility of being able to work from home, a recent report by Catalyst shows that working outside the office could also hurt women’s chances of feeling seen and heard at work.
Catalyst, a nonprofit that works to accelerate women into leadership, conducted a survey of 1,100 U.S. working adults over the age of 18. 45% of women business leaders say it’s difficult for women to speak up in virtual meetings. One in five women say they’ve felt ignored or overlooked by colleagues during video calls. Additionally, three in five female employees say they feel like their prospects of getting a promotion are worse in their new remote work environment.

This “Art of Influence Masterclass” presents one framework: storytelling. Over the course of 6 sessions, women will practice delivering a 2 minute personal story that answers these questions: Why do I deserve to be here? Why I am worth listening to? What is my experience? What subject am I well versed in? What angle do I view it from?
The cohort is comprised of 7 corporate women at similar stages in their career and looking to advance to the next level. There will be guest speakers at each session addressing challenges corporate women face.
Why am I the one to teach this class?
I’ve made my living as a television anchor for 20 years. I covered the financial markets from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. Daily, I interviewed CEOs of Fortune 500 and 1000 companies who were ringing the opening or closing bell. Hourly, I delivered 2 minute reports, analyzing the markets. I had to be concise. Engaging. Compelling.
