Addressing My Fears/Discomfort About Speaking

Fear of speaking can limit your opportunities for personal and professional growth. As you confront and conquer your discomfort, you'll gain a sense of accomplishment and give yourself permission to build stronger connections, broader networks, and more fulfilling social life.

Improving My Articulation & Pronunciation 

Articulation plays a significant role in interviews, presentations, meetings, and day-to-day interactions. Being able to express your thoughts and arguments clearly boosts your confidence, improves your credibility, and can contribute to career advancement.  Learn how to enhance your speech clarity through one-on-one and group activities 

Using My Body to Support What I’m Communicating

Body language conveys more meaning than words alone. It can foster trust, make others feel heard and understood, and strengthen relationships in personal, social, and professional settings. Learn the subtle cues and signals that your body sends to those you are communicating with. Self-study the movement of your body and other SPI participants.

Projecting Confidence When Speaking

Having the ability to speak confidently enables you to clearly express yourself, assert your needs, and engage in meaningful conversations that foster stronger relationships and greater personal development. Learn practical ways to project confidence and authority through the use of your tone, and body.

Meet Your Host
Linnita Hosten

I spent 6 years fighting insecurities about how I conveyed my thoughts, the tone of my voice, and how I was perceived. One day I decided that I was no longer going to shrink behind what I had the power to change. I begin to get intentional about using my voice and how I communicated with others.


Today I speak in front of thousands of people each year - proudly with very little nervousness and an act of bold courage that still surprises me.


In 2020, I founded Excellence Brainery, a soft skills training and development firm that partners with family service agencies and family-related organizations to teach families to thrive in the areas of communication, problem-solving, and time management.


I have been honored with various awards including Excellence in Education; Youth Speaker of the Year; 40 under 40 in Education; Education Book of the Year; Alumni of the Year; Leading Women of the Year; and Dominating Entrepreneur of the Year.


As an award-winning author, national edutainer, and philanthropist, I am passionate about creating meaningful connections between the home environment and the development of effective life skills for teens and young adults.


Let me help you discover your voice, build your confidence and enhance your speaking ability.
