This post is a bit of a departure for me. Normally I stick to my knitting, but today I’m branching out, living life on the edge once again.
The topic is public speaking. I do it a lot and you probably do a fair bit of it as well. If not, you are going to. I firmly believe that being good (not necessarily great) at speaking before a group of people is a critical skill to hone. It opens doors to opportunity, promotions and financial rewards. When I say public speaking, it can mean to a small group of senior managers as you present your business case, or an auditorium full of people who have paid money to hear what you have to say.
I’ve done my share of speaking over the years and kept a notebook of what went right and what went wrong. Then one day last month it occurred to me that I could offer my notes to the crowd. It’s written for the beginner to intermediate speaker. Someone who has done it a bit, but does not have a formula or enough confidence to shine through. But even if you are experienced at public speaking, I think you just might find a nugget or two here.
Here are a couple of excerpts from the E-Book.
