New Asian American scholarship

“Speak to Persuade” presentation skill workshop
Vanna Novak, President of Speak to Persuade, Inc. will present a special interactive presentation and demonstration of her popular “Speak to Persuade” presentation skills workshop to NAAAP-Seattle! Come and learn how you can become not only an effective communicator, but get buy-in within 10 seconds! In this competitive work environment, learning to develop and deliver powerful presentations is an essential skill for any business professional.

Ms. Novak has coached many Asian American professionals. In an interview with NAAAP-Seattle External Vice-President Marian Liu, Ms. Novak said, “For so long, our voices have not been heard… I’m not saying it’s anybody’s fault, but I do believe that with Asians in particular, we do not do a good enough job of using our voices to speak out effectively. … The work is cut out for us to present and project ourselves, to take us out and away from existing stereotypes.”

This special event will take place on April 23, 2010 at 6pm-9pm at the Seattle Times, 1120 John St., Seattle. Registration begins at 5:30 pm. Free parking after 6pm and light refreshments will be provided. Registration fee is $20 for NAAAP-Seattle members, $40 for non-members.
