This NAWBO-LA Downtown Connects is about developing a motivating presentation designed to improve the quality of how you present yourself an an expert, or share your inspiration, motivation or big idea. Storytelling is the key to compelling and noteworthy presentations to sell you. When you meet someone you want to be ready to “pitch” your products and services or utilize a speaking opportunity.

Mimi Donaldson will give you the exact formula that she has used in her 30 years as a sought-after internationally acclaimed speaker. She’s also the Speaker Coach for TEDx at Loyola Marymount University.

In this NAWBO-LA Connects, Mimi will help you to:

  • Find your ideas worth spreading, based on your “why” and how you have paid your dues.

  • Use your energy in positive ways to burn off nervousness.

  • Analyze your audience prior to preparing your speech.

  • Organize your speech based on your audience's concerns.

You will know how to create a pitch that is relevant, timely, and effective and make a lasting impact that your audience will remember.

The presentation is interactive and will include a handout that will help you design your “formula”.

And there’s more. You will also have an opportunity to put your new pitch skills to the test. You are invited to apply for one of 10 speaking slots for our upcoming August Signature Event: NAWBO-LA TALKS "My Best Failure - Inspirational stories how women overcome obstacles." We will select 10 women to showcase how they overcame obstacles and succeeded. More details at the July Downtown Connects.
