About this Event
In this practical yet lively online event, public speaking coach Gigi Rosenberg teaches you how to show up at your virtual meetings with confidence, authenticity and power. Leaders learn how to keep their audience engaged and their presentation succinct so that attendees remember the message long after they’ve clicked “leave meeting.” Meeting participants learn how to stay alert and engaged and avoid distractions and exhaustion.

Participants leave this event with:

Techniques for keeping the audience engaged from the moment they join the meeting.
Ideas for how to transfer in-person meeting skills to the virtual world.
Tips for looking and sounding your best on a screen.
Tools you can use right away in your next online meeting as a leader or participant.

PDXWIT is a community-based non-profit organization. Our purpose is to strengthen the Portland women in tech community by offering educational programs, partnerships, mentorships, resources and opportunities. We are unifying a supportive environment for current and potential women in tech, all of whom are committed to helping each other. Our goal is to bring together and empower women in tech and to encourage others to pursue tech careers. This is our step towards reducing the gender imbalance in the industry and addressing the current negative effects of that imbalance on women.

Our events are inclusive. ALL people who support our purpose are welcome.
