2016 WICT Speaks (2)
In this program, participants will be provided a safe and guided experience to improve their public speaking skills, increase their self-confidence and showcase their skills in a public forum consisting of key executives in their sphere of influence. Don’t let a phobia of public speaking overshadow the message you want to get across. Transform your fear into positive energy to nail your next presentation.

The WICT Speaks Program uses the following WICT Touchstones:
COMMUNICATE by creating and delivering a public speech.
CONNECT by audience engagement.
-Anyone who agrees to deliver a public speech is FEARLESS.
-The topics and the engaging delivery of these topics INSPIRE.
