Full Program Details
The Influential Speaker is a transformation. In 6-weeks, you will work on how to keep cool under pressure, hone your craft of speaking, and become the speaker that truly inspires.
Each cohort is limited to 10 participants. The program consists of online learning modules, a weekly live 1 hour 30 min class where you will be delivering a speaking project, and coaching sessions with Kit Pang.
Following a competitive selection process, The Influential Speaker delivers a practical learning experience through coaching, teamwork, online self-paced learning, personalized feedback, and speaking projects to take speakers to the next level.
The program is meant to give you a challenge as a speaker and leader. The Influential Speaker, a $2,250 workshop, is not for everyone. It's not for people who want the easy way out. It's not for people who want to stay where they are. It's for people who want to be the best and succeed professionally as a leader, expert, and speaker.
