On today’s episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast, I speak with founder and CEO of Global Public Speaking, Allison Shapira.
As a former opera singer, Shapira brings a unique perspective to public speaking. She helps business owners harness their voice as an instrument to most effectively communicate their message.
Shapira works with global brands as a speaker, trainer, and executive communication coach. Additionally, she provides coaching and support to women leaders through the Vital Voices Global Partnership, an organization that empowers women in the worlds of business, government, and the nonprofit sector.
She is the author of the book Speak with Impact: How to Command the Room and Influence Others. In this episode, Shapira shares the secrets to giving a great speech, crafting your messaging, banishing nerves, and making a lasting impact on your audience.
Questions I ask Allison Shapira:
