Speaking: Coaching YOU to Speak with Style


Are you a writer who wants to share your message from the platform?

Are you a woman who loves the Lord and His Word, and feels called to teach?

Are you a person with a passion or cause that you long to tell others about?

Does the thought scare you? Do you know where to begin? Need help?

“In  her coaching class for Oregon Christian Writers, Poppy Smith presented a wealth  of practical information on the nuts and bolts of public speaking. Beyond the DOs and DON”Ts listed in her  well-organized material, her personal demonstrations of effective use of  gestures and body language, how-to spice up a talk with use of dramatic, yet  natural voice inflection, voice projection and good eye contact, made the  material she presented come alive.I will continue to refer to her outlines. I  believe that this packet gives a clear presentation of the material she offers  for potential speaking engagements.”

“Thank you for the extra time and patience you gave me at the workshop  The things you said to me gave me confidence. I felt validated. Thank you.”
