What Confidence as a Business Etiquette Speaker Looks Like

Business etiquette experts refine and polish their confidence….consistently and constantly.  Our work is never done.  

I looked up the word “confidence” and am offering a twist or an expanded definition on it’s meaning just for us, the speakers and trainers of the world who speak on business etiquette or those who have the desire to do so.

Our best friend, Google, has this as one of the meanings:

“a feeling of self-assurance arising from one’s appreciation of one’s own abilities or qualities”

I like the above definition.  It fits.

I would like to offer you this thought.  Confidence comes from how you feel about yourself.  We are born with a certain level of confidence and here is the good news – you can up level and change it everyday.  It is a choice.

Specifically, my thoughts around confidence as a “business etiquette speaker in-training” are this:

Confidence as a speaker is a state of mind and one where we must set an intention to be…..confident. Confidence comes from taking the risk to share your passion and knowledge.  Confidence is knowing the value you offer to the participants in your audience.

Secondly, are you a risk-taker?  Here is my twist on being confident as a business etiquette trainer or speaker:

Being confident as an etiquette speaker also means not being afraid of any speaking opportunity or feeling of hesitancy in your abilities.  You’ve got this.  You can do it.  I promise. Take the risk.

First, you must be get started.

If I were you, I would take out your journal, note pad or the back of a napkin and write down all the evidence to support that you have the confidence to take the risk to start your journey to become a business etiquette speaker.

Take time to appreciate your abilities as they are right now.  Take time to appreciate that what you don’t know you can learn, quickly and with an open mind.

Remember, confidence is a feeling.  Try it on like a brand new dress that you can’t wait to wear.

Step 2

We offer two training options. 

One option is to train in-person, the other is a virtual training.  Both trainings are very personal.  

If you choose the in-person, we will mutually agree upon the dates and the location.  Most major cities are available (Washington DC, Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, Charlotte, etc.).  

The virtual training is “live” via video.  Again, we mutually decide on the dates.  Most choose to have their trainings once a week, others twice.   This is NOT self-guided.  We work together every step of the way.

The cost of the license, certification and training is $4400 (virtual or in-person)

A benefit of  the virtual training option is YOU save on travel costs.
