Build your communication skills to catalyze personal and planetary change. Presented by Gail Larsen and sponsored by Hollyhock Leadership Institute. A condensed course with master teacher Gail Larsen that provides a solid foundation on which to build. Whether you want to enhance your non-profit, business or social enterprise impact, or discover kindred spirits who resonate with your ideas, this work will serve you well. Become more effective with audiences whose worldviews and values vary from your own and learn ten essential principles for speaking out for change, whether you are speaking to one person or to thousands.

Gail's classes are lively, engaging, supportive, and fun, inviting you to call forth your best as you stretch to the size of your calling.

  • Discover and appreciate your individual communications strengths and the power of your story, then practice the three speaking skills that count
  • Build bridges rather than walls to open new avenues of understanding and potential support
  • Make the human connection that sets the stage for your message to be more readily heard
  • Catalyze change that is ready to happen

If you've considered joining Gail's Transformational Speaking class September 6-9 at Hollyhock, this introduction to her work will prepare you for more hands-on experience and practice in developing your skills. Hollyhock's spectacular setting affords the opportunity to synthesize what you're learning as you work with Gail on a more personal level.

Gail Larsen is the author of Transformational Speaking: If You Want to Change the World, Tell a Better Story, and the founder of Real Speaking, the premier presentations coaching program for people of purpose & catalysts of change. A U.S. Small Business Administration Small Business Person of the Year award and former executive vice president of the worldwide National Speakers Association. Learn more at www.realspeaking.net.
