Do You Speak Up?

What is your reaction when you are asked to speak? Do you step up and take the microphone or do you run and hide? I enjoy speaking to business groups and participating in panels.

It’s a great way to:

  • Help people who struggle with your fields of expertise
  • Motivate others to make changes that will benefit them
  • Establish yourself as an expert in your field

While cleaning out my garage a few weeks ago, I found the first award that I had ever won. It was a “Speak Up of the Year” award from the Arizona Jaycee Women in 1975. You can see that I’ve been speaking up for a long time.

If you want help learning how to speak in front of groups, check out Toastmasters International. They have a great program.

If you’re an experienced speaker and you want to learn how to be a professional in the speaking business, go to the pros at National Speakers Association. That’s where you’re learn the business side of the speaking industry.
