OKWIT OKC August Event – Communicating with Confidence 6:00 pm
OKWIT OKC August Event – Communicating with Confidence @ Renaissance Waterford Oklahoma City Hotel
Aug 29 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
OKWIT OKC August Event - Communicating with Confidence @ Renaissance Waterford Oklahoma City Hotel
  Join us this month as we discuss the importance of communicating with confidence! Confidence isn’t necessarily a feeling, it’s how you present yourself despite how you’re feeling – and this is something that can be improved over time. By acting confidently, you can influence how others perceive you and change how you feel about yourself; within each interaction it is not what you communicate, but how you communicate that makes all the difference. At this event, we won’t only discuss the lack of confidence, but also how egos and hot-headed temperaments can impact the way others perceive your message. Accompany us for a dialogue on cultivating emotional control, insight, charisma, and courage to voice your ideas and respectfully champion them. Appetizers to be provided, and cash bar available. We look forward to seeing you there, and promoting growth through confidence! This event is made possible by our corporate sponsors, Devon Energy and Pinnacle Business Systems, and Coretopia.
