Get over your fear of public speaking (or become an even better public speaker)!  


  • Does the thought of speaking in public make your knees shake and your stomach churn?
  • Is speaking in public holding you back in your career?
  • Do you struggle to communicate effectively your ideas and opinions?
  • Is it a challenge to network with others in a professional environment??


If any of those questions resonate with you, the MCAWW Speech Network is the place for you! 

This organization provides a relaxed, safe environment to practice speaking skills and receive valuable feedback, all while having a lot of fun and connecting with others in the industry! 



MCAWW provides a welcoming environment where industry stakeholders can boost their confidence in communication, networking, and public speaking.
