Let's be real for a sec. Speaking in front of people. In front of strangers. Can be NERVE WRECKING. How do we not feel like an imposter? How do we become a confident speaker whether it's in a staff meeting, a presentation, or a speech? And why does everyone else look soooo good at it? Join Sarah Lillie Anderson, Senior Manager of Tree Equity at American Forests and ELP Senior Fellow, for an honest and personal conversation about public speaking and finding the right medium for your voice. Sarah will begin with giving her background and experience public speaking (the good, the bad, and the ugly) then leave plenty of room for an open Q&A.
