I'm going to publish my 500th Public Speaking Tip in this post but first I will tell you about some recent talks and training. Coaching a club speaker. hour session with a speaker who had booked me for my service offering coaching for Women's Institute speaker auditions and club speakers. It was good to work with such a focused speaker. Some years ago I was discussing a very good speaker with an organiser who had booked me for a club.

Back in 1998, when I had been a speaker for just a couple of years, I spoke at a WI Group meeting in Oxford. This got a big laugh and the poor speaker realised what was happening and said 'Well, he has to get his material from somewhere!' Afterwards we chatted and she didn't mind, in fact she booked me for the Oxfordshire WI Markets Annual Lunch the next year, another great gig, but I look back on it as unprofessional behaviour by a fairly novice speaker.
