Getting Past Small Talk in Networking - Johanna Walker
It’s amazing to meet people who feel one hundred percent calm and confident on stage, but who feel timid and uncertain in smaller, unstructured settings.
Johanna Walker is a speaking and storytelling coach in Boulder, Colorado. Listen to how she describes her work and the beliefs that drive it:
“I crack open opportunities for people to experience pure, raw truth, then watch them nail their presentations and watch their careers and their lives soar.
I believe everyone has a story that can make a difference in someone's life.
I believe that no matter what message you're trying to convey, you won't get anywhere till you truly connect with your audience.
I believe in the power of bringing your whole body & voice & breath & heart into the room, and speaking from there without apology, even when the idea of it scares the bejeezus out of you.
I believe when you walk right up to your fear and shake its hand, tectonic shifts happen----in your life, your relationships, your business, your world.”
I asked Johanna to bring some of the lessons she teaches about presenting onstage and translating them for a different platform - the networking event.
