Just Breathe! How to add power to your voice and calm your
nerves when speaking in public.
What’s the first thing we forget to do when we stand in front of an audience? We forget to breathe. Yet deep, regular breathing is essential to conveying power and confidence through our voice – and the single best way to calm our nerves. Come to this interactive workshop to learn how you can use the breathing techniques of opera singers the next time you speak in public. Allison Shapira (MC/MPA 2010) is a former opera singer and the president of Global Public Speaking, a DC-based company which helps people give powerful and authentic speeches and presentations.
