Does the idea of public speaking in front of a crowd give you anxiety? Or you’re already a seasoned speaker in front of crowds, but want to know how to really command an audience.
My name is Joya Dass. I’m a 20 year television anchor in New York City. More importantly, I’ve cut my teeth as a business anchor reporting from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. I had a series of screens around on the trading floor that informed me where the Dow, Nasdaq, oil and gold stood and a series of bullet points scratched on a piece of paper about the stocks I needed to talk about. I had to fashion all of this into a 2 or 3 minute cogent and compelling story for the airwaves, with usually with a commercial break to put it together. This has trained me to work fast and design a class to give you immediate results.
Today, I’m mainly engaging female leaders such as Anjali Sud, the CEO of Vimeo, in a fireside chat for my women’s movement LadyDrinks. I’m also speaking to employee resource groups on Assertiveness vs Aggressiveness, Branding Yourself and How to be a Better Networker.
I’m a TedX Speaker. I gave my first TedxTalk at Barnard on the topic of “Re-thinking Failure” in a series that featured Shark Tank’s Barbara Corcoran and activist Jimmie Briggs.

I rarely do public speaking. I had nerves and anxiety as I was readying for the LadyDrinks Fireside Chat last January. Joya was a great resource for me in preparing for it. She sent me the outline of talking points ahead of time and shared where to I should add more story or color. She shared wonderful tips on how to handle a public speaking engagement. They worked like a charm for me!
