For many people, the fear of public speaking is stronger than the fear of death. If this sounds like you, Own the Room® training may be just what you need!
Own The Room® is going to change the way you think about public speaking! You won’t believe how much you can learn, and you will be surprised how much fun the methodology is, combining interactivity, technology and a different learning approach to help you become a rock star presenter.
Whether communicating internally with staff or externally with volunteers, donors, and other supporters, you will benefit from this training. Multiple staff members are encouraged to attend, no matter their staff level.
The cost of this training would typically be $700-800/person, but thanks to the support of a generous donor, the cost is only $75 for MNA members and $100 for non-members.
