Speaking with Competence & Confidence

You can have the best ideas in the world, but if nobody hears them they’re worthless. The good news is that anyone can learn to communicate well by following a simple set of easy to adopt principles. These effortless pointers can help even the shyest, most tongue-tied people to look, sound, and feel competent and confident when pitching ideas, presenting project outcomes, or asking for what you need at work. When people feel empowered to ask for what they need, or recommend a new path, it increases trust between management and staff leading to a happy workforce that trickles into customer interaction, better performance overall, and an increased bottom line.

What do audiences have to say about Aden?

My team and I learned so much. I loved that you created this experience to change the negative dynamic that dominates our daily communication. Every friend, business, board and community organization should take the Reason in an Outraged World workshop to better their work and personal relationships

One of the best decisions we have made. Her personable manner, expert communication training, and complete commitment to the success of our session remains a touchpoint for many of my colleagues. One hesitant coworker, on the way out the door after the session, could not say enough about the training, Aden, and the skills with which she was leaving. This has resonated across the team. Other training from Aden has been requested on numerous occasions. If you have the chance to take classes from Aden or work with her on your team’s communication needs, don’t hesitate!

Aden is professional, fun, smart and cool under pressure. She can handle every part of a speaking engagement: connecting with clients, creating dazzling presentation visuals, organizing her thoughts, being present in the moment with the audience, and following up with individuals afterwards. She’s a pleasure to work with and makes those around her better for it.
