Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is Stories From Women Who Walk. You’ll recognize yourself in these true-life stories from women who are walking their lives while their lives walk them and the lasting difference these journeys have made. I’m your host, Diane Wyzga.
Do you ever wonder if people listen to what you said?
Have you ever wanted to know what to say to get the professional connections you seek?
Does the idea of showing up and speaking give you Stagefright Willies?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then this podcast episode is for you.
Today my guest is Catherine Johns, a professional speaker and expert in communication who’s joining us from the Windy City of Chicago, Illinois. Today Catherine brings her powerful experiences as a broadcaster in large radio markets to coaching executives and entrepreneurs who want to make meaningful connections at every turn, real or virtual.
