Do you ever feel like you and your work are being super-analyzed for any weak link? Do you wonder if clients and prospects are truly engaging with you or only hearing a sales pitch?

In our annual Member Appreciation event, you will learn how to shift your mindset about how others view you so you feel more confident and appear more charismatic with your messaging. This leads to increased fan and customer engagement, conversion and sales - which boosts your bottom line!

This event is a members only event and is free to members. Not a member? Join now.  

Free?  Yes.  And it gets even better:  Invite two women entrepreneur colleagues and introduce them to our organization -- all for free!

Brave New Workshop presents:  Finding strength in vulnerability: How to reframe scrutiny into opportunity

Program Description: 

Humans are hard-wired to scan for threats every second, and situations which involve others judging us typically register in our brains as serious threats, even though it is never a matter of survival. So, feeling apprehensive or anxious about your next sales conversation, client meeting or evaluation is absolutely normal and part of being human. What we do have to master though is how to reframe the stress, so that we can perform to the best of our ability and ultimately achieve our goals.


Margi Simmons, the Director of Applied Improvisation at the Brave New Workshop, will walk you through three steps to thriving in situations where you are in the spotlight – how to prepare, how to ground yourself during the experience and what to do afterwards. Margi will help you shift your  mindset and practice key techniques so that you can be your best, most authentic self the next time you are pitching your idea, selling your product/service or  receiving feedback.


Margi’s presentation will feature group discussions, hands on exercises, stories from her life as a performer and facilitator and much laughter.
