GENERAL SESSION – QUICK CONFIDENCE: OWN YOUR POWER
Speaker: Selena Rezvani
Most aspiring leaders know they need self-confidence: the ability to project authority, belief, and authenticity. Yet lasting confidence requires more than fake it ‘til you make it platitudes. This session, based on Selena Rezvani’s forthcoming career guidebook, Quick Confidence: Be Authentic, Boost Connections, and Make Bold Bets on Yourself, helps ambitious professionals summon their personal power by addressing three key confidence filters—mindset shifts, body language habits, and interpersonal techniques. Through immersive exercises, participants practice owning their authority and making their credibility known. Whether you’re dealing with intimidating people, hoping to ace a presentation or better connect with others, participants will walk away ready to show up and speak up—and help others do the same.
