    Balance Your 3 V’s for a Polished Professional Presence!

    February 21st,  2018 - 11:30 am – 1:30 pm

    Lynda Katz Wilner will talk abut how a powerful and polished professional presence balances the 3 V’s of communication: Visual (how you look), Vocal (how you sound), and Verbal (what you say).

    Learn to align your V’s to sell yourself and your business in a professional manner.

    Participants will:

    • Learn aspects of ideal visual communication: handshake, posture, facial expression, gestures, eye contact
    • Improve vocal communication: voice quality, rate of speech, vocal variety
    • Learn how to organize a clear and concise verbal message

    Lynda Katz Wilner is a communication specialist, coach, and a Maryland licensed and nationally certified Speech and Language Pathologist with over 30 years’ experience in speech, language, and voice concerns. Her company, Successfully Speaking, works with individuals and companies to help professionals achieve excellent communication skills.
