#ThursdayGathering | Dress Rehearsal 4 Life: Public Speaking

Challenge Yourself To Connect

During the 10 Days of Connection, challenge yourself to connect across lines of difference. There are many ways to do that: share a meal with someone you wouldn’t normally cross paths with, read a book or watch a movie that highlights the beauty of connection, take part in #MiamiWalks to get to know a new neighborhood, etc.! Check out and RSVP to the many opportunities to connect below, and if you’d like to host a connection experience, learn more on the Host page!

Brought to you by Peter Cummings, this experience will allow to you learn how to become aware of personal speech habits and characteristics to increase confidence, by interacting with other people in the room who will share their stories, receive and provide feedback.

A great pitch is always evolving. It has to be pliable to the moment, not just a memorized speech. It’s a verbal interaction and it requires many skills to be an effective communicator.

By having fun in the process and learning from others, you will improve your posture, movement and vocal dynamics; you will cultivate poise and self-confidence; you will build the necessary tools to unleash your potential. All that in a supportive and friendly environment.
