  • Who is Attending?
The BFI Orange County Women in Influence (WIN) network extends an invitation to you to join us and guest speaker Deborah Shames in continuing our communication skills training.

Deborah is an award-winning film, television director, and author. She founded the only female owned production company in the San Francisco Bay Area – Focal Point Productions, which she ran for 15 years.  She is a veteran speaker and master trainer with 18 years of experience coaching high-level executives and celebrities, and invites women to step up and be heard. Noting the perfection syndrome and negative self-talk that plague many women, Deborah delivers a how-to for battling these demons and identifies women’s special talents – from high emotional intelligence and leadership skills to storytelling. She guides in the mechanics of communicating efficiently and constructing successful presentations, even with pressing deadlines.

Developing excellent communication and public speaking skills gives everyone the ability to rise to their full potential, seize every opportunity, and realize their aspirations. Whether pitching for new business, delivering a talk at a conference, raising money for a non-profit, or communicating one-on-one with coworkers, you can become an effective, powerful communicator. 
11:30 M to 1:30 PM - Speaker Event
Invited guests include prominent Southern California business leaders, advisors, and c-suite professionals. Both men and women are encouraged to attend.
