    Join PWOW for our monthly Empowerment Luncheon featuring Julia Duffy who will speak about the "Power of Persistence"

    Julia Duffy came out of the womb making people laugh while helping the attending physician with his stage presence. From that moment on, she was hooked on helping people rock their performance skills.

    After leaving her Texas homeland, she became one of only three female TV audience warm-up comics in Hollywood and then a producer of talk and reality television shows. Through her experience, she overcame her performance anxieties while working with acclaimed producers and comedic legends such as Jerry Seinfeld, Lily Tomlin, Martin Short, Billy Crystal, Chevy Chase, Whoopi Goldberg and many others.

    Being passionate about sharing her performance skills and tumultuous journey has empowered her to help others find their confidence, tenacity and the ability to shine. From corporate groups to non-profits and individuals, Julia has given diverse folks the techniques and best practices they need to successfully take their presentation skills to the next level, helping them all to persuasively present themselves to live audiences, as well as on camera.

    Julia can help you discover and amplify your abilities to:

    *Squash stage fright with unwavering confidence

    *Connect with and engage any audience anywhere

    *Command a room and stand out in any situation

    *Present yourself from a strong position

    *...and MUCH more

    Thank you to this month's sponsors!
