Transformational Speaking - A Women's Workshop with Gail Larsen
Women's Workshop with Gail Larsen
August 26 - 29, 2010

Held in Santa Fe, New Mexico


The Beauty of Santa Fe, New Mexico.Rediscover your authentic voice

Ignite your personal passion

Learn to fully express the power of
who you are and what you know

Join Gail Larsen, Real Speaking founder and master instructor, for a three-day, semi-private coaching experience designed to move you into the presentation you were born to give to the audience you are destined to serve. This three-day intensive for just six "important strangers" is a rich exploration of your best ideas, the stories that bring them to life, and your own distinctive way to share them, all with ongoing coaching and videotaping.

Gertrude Stein said, "If you already knew it, it would not be creation but dictation." Most of us are caught in jet lag about who we've become and typically don't know our own best material, so in Transformational Speaking we are reaching for creation of the new expression rather than dictation from an old mindset. On the final day you distill what you have to say into a 15-20 minute presentation integrating all you've learned. Whether your goal is a dynamic keynote speech or a dramatic shift in your ability to communicate one-on-one, Real Speaking provides targeted and no-nonsense support for the breakthrough you want to achieve.

A group of no more than six participants will gather for three days and undertake a voyage of discovery, where you will:

     ~  Identify and develop your core message.

     ~  Discover and appreciate your individual communications style.

The Southwest is filled with beautiful flowers and adobe architecture.

     ~  Learn dynamic principles that create and sustain
         success in public speaking and face-to-face

     ~  Experience deeper levels of authentic expression.

     ~  Rekindle the power of your personal stories and
         learn how to use stories effectively.

     ~  Watch your strengths emerge as you receive
         potent on-camera coaching.

     ~  Learn an easy method of presentation development.

     ~  Develop and deliver an original presentation integrating all you've learned.
