BAR HARBOR — Kendra Rand will teach a workshop titled “The Public Speaker’s Tool Kit” at Anchorspace on Friday, Jan. 19, at 3 p.m.

The workshop is part of a series of professional development events at Anchorspace. Participants will sharpen their communication skills and boost their confidence in their presentation and public speaking ability.

“From applying for financing to presenting your product, every business owner needs to be able to communicate successfully,” said Jane Holland, Anchorspace community manager. “We are lucky to have a local expert in Kendra, who will be able to coach participants to reduce the stress associated with being ‘on stage’ and provide some tricks for confident public communication.”

Rand has been teaching public speaking, communication studies and media writing since 1999, both privately and as an instructor for the University of Maine Department of Communication and Journalism.

The monthly workshops are free for Anchorspace members and cost $25 to the general public. There is a networking happy hour after, where participants can learn new skills and meet other professionals.

The workshops will be streamed online, ensuring that members can’t attend in person can still benefit.
