for Own the Room: in a Virtual World
Take your public speaking skills even higher with the help of Own the Room coach Mary Jo Romeo, who is also an executive coach and has held senior management roles with Johnson & Johnson's Baby Center, The Weather Channel, Working Mother, and more. Own the Room, with a client roster including Facebook, Google, Pandora, ESPN, and others, will offer a series of four virtual workshops (normally $79 per workshop) designed to help you succeed further in today’s workplace, where how you present yourself virtually can mean everything to your career and business.
You must attend all four workshops (see the sidebar for descriptions) to receive your certificate and one-year YWCA.GC membership. Space is limited to 25 participants, so sign up soon to secure your spot!
All four workshops will be held via Zoom from 6 PM to 7:30 PM on a Tuesday evening — see the sidebar for dates and descriptions. The link and login info will be provided to the first 25 registrants prior to the first workshop.

As the saying goes, "Content is king." But when it comes to communication—both in-person and virtual--your tone of voice, body language, and delivery greatly impact whether or not your content will stick. In this workshop, you'll discover how to convey confidence, gain credibility, capture attention, and deliver more effective messages using subtle, powerful voice modulation and non-verbal techniques.
