Workshop: Communicating with Presence

We’ve all seen people who carry an undeniable positive energy and confidence. They project authority and immediately connect with others. What exactly is going on there, and what makes their messaging so contagious? 

Please join Young Professionals in Foreign Policy – San Francisco for a workshop led by Anne Ricketts, a public speaking coach and cross-cultural communications expert, on developing skills and strategies for commanding attention, maintaining connection, and sustaining presence. The 90 mins. workshop will be a dynamic mix of discussion, video clips, small group activities and practice.

This event is open to twenty YPFP members. Please RSVP at the following link: https://goo.gl/forms/OZojIzbCQd0zfNv02. *If you do not intend to attend the workshop or are unable to commit to the full two hours, we ask that you please do not sign-up in order to allow other dedicated individuals the opportunity to attend.

Anne Ricketts is the founder and principal of Lighthouse Communications. She founded Lighthouse Communications in 2013 after seeing the need at many Bay Area companies with a heavy international workforce for English as a second language and communication skills training. Ricketts has taught workshops at many of the top tech companies around the world. She grew up in the Bay Area, and attended the University of California at Davis where she majored in Italian. Indulging her passion for world travel, she spent several years studying and teaching English in Florence. In 2004, Ricketts moved back to San Francisco and earned a Masters in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).
