About Allison

Allison Shapira (MC/MPA 2010) is the founder/CEO of Global Public Speaking, a communication training firm based in Washington, DC that works with companies and individuals around the world. She is also an adjunct lecturer at the Harvard Kennedy School teaching The Arts of Communication.

Every day, you have an opportunity to use your voice to have a positive impact--at work or in your community. You can inspire and persuade your audience--or you can distract and put them to sleep.

Nervous, rambling robotic--these presentation styles can ruin a talk on even the most critical topics. And with each weak performance, career prospects dim.

To get ahead and make an impact, you need to deliver well-crafted messages with confidence and authenticity. You must sound as capable as you are.

Public speaking is a skill, not a talent. With the right guidance, anyone can be a powerful speaker. Learn to conquer fear, capture attention, motivate action, and take charge of your career with Speak with Impact. Written by an opera singer turned CEO, speaker, and executive communication coach, the book unravels the mysteries of commanding attention in any setting, professional or personal.

Join HKS Alumna Allison Shapira at that Harvard Coop for a book signing and discussion on how you can Speak with Impact. After the event, you are invited to join Allison and members of the HKS New England Alumni Association for an informal gathering at the Beat Brew Hall next to the Coop.

Date/Time: April 2, 2019 7:00 to 8:30 PM
Location: Harvard Coop
Co-sponsored by the Harvard Coop and the HKS New England Alumni Association.
