For the third consecutive year, Conscious Connections, a Valley-based organization that leads a community of highly conscious business women, is holding auditions for its Take the Stage program from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 25.

Six business women will be selected to participate in Take the Stage where they will create a mini-TED Talk that they will present to a crowd of more than 100 at Conscious Connections’ annual Thought Leaders Summit on Wednesday, April 19.

The three-month Take the Stage program includes group and private coaching, a public presentation and professional video of the talk to help speakers launch their speaking endeavors.

According to Conscious Connections Founder Kristi Hall, one of the key indicators of business and leadership success is strong communication. She believes that mastering public speaking is one of the most effective ways to gain exposure, stand out in your industry, make an impact, and grow your business.

“I believe in carefully crafting, honing and practicing your talk before sharing it with your ideal audience,” said Hall. “That’s what Conscious Connections’ Take the Stage delivers.”

“Business women are passionately invested in making an impact. They have important messages to share that will empower people in many areas of their lives and businesses, and taking the stage is the secret weapon to getting that message out to the masses.”
