Event details:  

Have you ever berated yourself for missing a golden opportunity to talk about yourself and your accomplishments because you were fearful of coming off as too showy or self-serving? Learn the art of tooting your own horn without blowing it so you can communicate your strengths and accomplishments without appearing too opportunistic, eager, egotistical, or self-aggrandizing. For most of us, brag is a four letter word and self-promotion is about as comfortable as having a root canal. Find out how to overcome your reservations about bragging so you can comfortably sell yourself wherever you go—without feeling or sounding like a walking billboard.

Author, Peggy Klaus, a top Fortune 500 communication and leadership coach, shares her strategies on the art of bragging with style and grace.
