Our Guest Speaker: Jackie Miller
Jackie Miller launched Bespoken in 2015 to channel years of professional performance experience into techniques that improve public speaking, presenting, and professional communication skills. Bespoken’s motto – Own Your Voice – stems from the belief that everyone has the ability to communicate purposefully when given tools tailored to their unique voice allowing them to make powerful verbal and physical choices on their own. Client highlights include Showtime, Uber, Simon & Schuster, Columbia Business School, and Johnson & Johnson. Jackie’s diverse experience has shown her that regardless of one’s age or profession, the desire to speak with purpose is a universal one – and one she’s proud to help many different people achieve.
