Do you consider yourself to be a pretty good public speaker? Maybe even a great speaker? It’s possible you’re getting the job done, but there’s always room for improvement. As you’ll hear in part four of our four part series with Speaker Sisterhood club leaders and members, today’s guest came to our clubs to make small tweaks with an eye on big changes.
My guest today is Kathy Vines, a Certified Professional Organizer, owner of Clever Girl Organizing, and certified coach (CTACC) and professional resume writer through Kathy Vines Coaching.
On today’s show, Kathy describes her desire to go from being a trainer to being a more inspirational speaker through the use of storytelling and audience engagement techniques. She got the chance to test these new skills in her Speaker Sisterhood club before showing up in front of her audience and saw the difference right away.
If you want to take your skills to the next level, listen to today’s episode and take a look at our new program, Speaker Sisterhood Express. This is our new six-month, accelerated public speaking training program launching next month. Registration closes today at 5pm ET and more information can be found here.
