1-day Public speaking & presentation secrets event in London
Our good friend Joanna Martin is running a fantastic 1-day seminar in London in May 2012 about public speaking and presentation secrets. If you want to learn how to be a better public speaker then you MUST attend this event.
I have been on the event myself so I can personally vouch for Joanna and her work. I have done all my public speaking training with her and it has resulted in me being invited to speak at conferences all around the world including Australia and Dubai.
