Helping Women Around the World Find Their Voice
Global Public Speaking LLC offers special programs to help women overcome the specific challenges they face when speaking in public.
We discuss traditional, cultural, professional, and political constraints, learning leadership and negotiation tools to build partnerships around important issues so that when women speak up, they don’t speak alone.
We have worked with some of the world’s experts in women’s leadership and empowerment, such as Vital Voices Global Partnership, the National Democratic Institute Division of Women’s Political Participation, the Harvard University Institute of Politics Women’s Initiative in Leadership, and the Harvard Kennedy School Women and Public Policy Program.
5 Tips for Women in Leadership
Not only did you give our high performing women confidence, direction, and great tools for speaking, but you inspired us all by showing us that life can take blunt turns, sending us into new adventures. Thank you for realizing that your gifts must be shared and for doing all you do for women AND men that cross your path.Senior Vice President, Southeast Regional Executive – Business Banking, Multinational Fortune 50 Bank
At The Institute for Economic Empowerment of Women (IEEW), we are over the moon about Allison Shapira. On July 11, Bank of America sponsored Allison’s workshop, ‘Speaking with Confidence.’ Her audience was the PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS(r) Leadership Development delegation of women entrepreneurs from Afghanistan and Rwanda. Confidence is exactly what came out in these twenty-four initially soft-spoken, sometimes shy business owners. Two days later, observing the women working in teams on the difference between leadership and management, it was difficult to guess which participants were students and which were coaches. Because of Allison’s work with the women, they grew to be more confident and returned to their home countries buzzing with new ideas! Quite a transformation and a lot of fun too.Karel Ford, Director of Operations, Institute for Economic Empowerment of Women
I always thought I was a good public speaker, but had no idea how much of a diamond in the rough I was until I met Allison. She helped polish my public speaking, but, most importantly, she gave me the confidence to stand tall. Each time I am asked to speak, I think back on the lessons I learned from Allison — from how to breath and relax my body, to letting my passion shine through. Every minute with Allison is worth its weight in gold…It is clear that Allison has a passion for teaching and empowering people. She is an expert at helping people feel comfortable in their own skin, which is the key to winning in all aspects of public speaking. When Allison speaks, we all listen, because every word is full of wisdom. I’m grateful that our lives have crossed paths.Participant, Latino Leadership Initiative, Harvard Kennedy School
