Your Time to Shine Communication Workshops

Dear Parent:

Whether we like it or not, we will always be judged by 3 things:

  • How we look   
  • How we act  
  • How we speak

If your child is preparing for college, trying to get a job,or just needs to enhance their communication skills, you can help them gain the advantage by signing them up to work one-on-one with a Communications Coach like me. I have created a Your Time to Shine Workshop series.  These interactive and engaging COMMUNICATION sessions are uniquely created to help them navigate the journey that lies ahead.

If you ask her, she’ll tell you her greatest challenge has been her now-grown daughter— who used to believe the whole world spoke “ebonics!”  Through Beverly’s constant nagging about the importance of “good grammar” and teaching her daughter how to market herself to get a job, Beverly discovered she has a sincere passion for helping young people and has become committed to helping them succeed in their professional and personal lives.  As a result of her youth volunteer work and youth-based focus groups, she has created the Your Time to Shine Workshop Series, which provides tools and resources young people need to market themselves professionally and with confidence.  She, along with a team of young professionals, have come up with an engaging, fun and inspiring way to educate young people!
