The common thread among all of us…

…is the need to be heard and to know that what we say matters. Whether you are a student, a business owner, employee, organization or company, connecting better with others brings out your gifts. Your message is important. It needs to be heard. There is something that makes you special. Most people have a hard time recognizing and believing in their uniqueness. It’s important to share your story. There are people that want to listen.

Let Debby Raposa of Part of a Movement guide you to find your gifts so your voice can be heard.

“Your Stand Up and Stand Out presentation was an excellent topic for the SGMPAZ members. Everyone really enjoyed the presentation and we all learned something new about being more aware of our how we talk to ourselves! We all need to be reminded of where we learned some of the self-limiting boundaries that we grew into and are still using. Not only was it a great meeting topic, but it was fun and entertaining! This topic was timely for all of our members as we try to be the best we can be in our careers. Thanks for the revelation – we are our own role models.”
