Workshop: Public Speaking 101 : Tools, Tips and Techniques to find your voice and use your fear
Chris and Marguerite are professional actors with a combined experience of over 50 years performing on stage, and in film and TV. That works out to thousands of hours of auditioning, i.e. presenting their work to strangers. Together they formed Speechpie, a public speaking coaching and consulting service, to help people both inside and out of the entertainment industry speak more confidently in public about their work and themselves. Both Chris and Marguerite are super passionate about sharing their experience and techniques and love empowering others to shine their brightest. Whether it's speeches, presentations, developing tours for companies, or helping someone network better at a party, they have worked with clients in various fields, including NGO's, Non-profits, CEO's, producers, directors, and corporate. Public Speaking + The Right Ingredients = Delicious.
