New York (April 16, 2013) — Diane DiResta, founder and CEO of DiResta Communications, Inc, spoke at the Ellevate Newtork’s recent workshop, Speak Your Way To Success: Public Speaking Workshop, on Wednesday, April 14th, 2015. Public speaking is the new competitive advantage. Avoiding this critical skill is committing career suicide.

DiResta said, "If fear of speaking is holding you back or if you want to up your game, you need these skills."

This two hour interactive workshop focused on:

  • How to create presence on the platform whether you speak to one or one thousand
  • Techniques for managing nervousness
  • What confidence looks like, sounds like, and how to speak the language of confidence.

Attendees left with more confidence and the ability to step up and speak out. It was aimed to reach audiences at any level of their career: emerging leaders, established executives, and senior executives.

DiResta also spoke at the 2015 Enterprising Women of the Year Conference. Watch footage here.
