the gender gap in presentation skills

When Harvard president Lawrence Summers suggested that fewer women reach high-level positions in science due to differences in innate ability or innate preference, he created a firestorm. One thing we know after decades working with top women who work as scientists, engineers, physicians, attorneys and public officials: Women in all professions have specific advantages and challenges when it comes to public speaking, presentations and media interviews. To help them build on their gender advantages, we're developing new workshops for professional women on presentation skills, covering effective messages, physical movement, appearance and dress, and more. Let us know your greatest challenge, biggest fear or best moment in presenting or speaking with an email at -- you can help us shape the workshop content now! Look for these new workshops to debut early in 2007...or call us sooner for a consultation now.
