Speak Up and Speak Out: The Art of Public Speaking
Despite the inclement weather, AWIB members and supporters attended our Speak Up and Speak Out workshop to improve their public speaking abilities. Held at the IESE Business School in mid-town Manhattan, they enjoyed a brief reception before the workshop began. Robyn Hatcher, Founder and CEO of SpeakEtc, expertly led the group with an interesting discussion on types of speaking styles and involved the group in a variety of interactive practice sessions. Attendees learned to reframe and "make friends" with their nerves, and developed a number of techniques to communicate more effectively with small as well as large groups. As was the case with past events led by Robyn, the written evaluations were excellent and the only critique was that we ran out of time.
AWIB thanks IESE for hosting us at their facility and most of all, we thank Robyn Hatcher for sharing her skills with us.
Please see the program announcement and photos from the event.

The featured exhibition was Show and Tell: Stories in Chinese Painting, with 60 pictorial works and 30 decorative objects from the 12th century to the present. Guests enjoyed the reception held in the Temple of Dendur and the magnificent dragon dance thrilled us all.

A Special Lunar New Year Celebration @Bloomingdale's
Our members and supporters gathered for a Special Lunar New Year celebration at Bloomingdale’s flagship store on Third Avenue and 59th Street. We had a wonderful fashion show, highlighting the latest spring fashion trends, and received useful tips on accessorizing. Amore Pacific sponsored the evening with a gift bag of products and each of our guests received a coupon for a free facial. The passed h’orderves were exceptional and the prosecco hit the spot. Thank you Bloomingdale’s for helping us celebrate the year of the rooster.
Please see the invitation and photos from the event.
