One of the greatest gifts women can give themselves is the opportunity to master public speaking, practice presentation skills and confidently ask for what they need in order to achieve their personal goals

PowHERhouse Performance Strategies is pleased to announce PowHERtalks!

“Success boils down to how well you communicate with others, whether it’s two people or 200,” said PowHERhouse CEO Charlene SanJenko. “And it’s not only what is said, but how it’s said. PowHERtalks offers a platform and process that helps women develop a talk, practice it, and secure the support they need to confidently and concisely deliver it. Join us for one of our upcoming six events between October 2015 and May 2016.”

“One of the greatest gifts women can give themselves is the opportunity to master public speaking, practice presentation skills and confidently ask for what they need in order to achieve their personal goals,” said SanJenko, a successful entrepreneur and Town Councillor for Gibsons, BC. “We believe women’s success in business situations can be hindered by the way they communicate to upper management, colleagues, and clients. That’s why we’re determined to help women with a mission to become more PowHERful speakers.”
