How To Find Your Audience [Student Highlight]

With Michelle Onuorah

Sharing in the excitement of our student’s success is such a privilege for our team at the Speaker Lab. Our Director of Student Success, Maryalice Goldsmith, is taking the mic for our Student Highlight series so you can hear more about our students experiences and what they want you to know about growing your speaking business.
