As women in tech, it can be difficult to be taken seriously in a boardroom filled with men. By mastering the art of vocal executive presence we create a connection between our words and our delivery to increase the credibility of our thoughts, ideas, and suggestions.
Laura Sicola offers a great Ted Talk where she explains the disconnect so many have between what they say and how it is perceived and ultimately how they are viewed in business.
I highly recommend you take 15 minutes to watch her presentation.
