Speaking of Testimonials

Speak and Deliver

Add a photo. Once I had my template together, each one took about 10 minutes, not counting compile and upload time. It's one thing when you spend your life writing marketing copy designed to tell people how brilliant you are as a speaker. It's another when you can get someone else to say it, too!

Famous Speech Friday: Emmeline Pankhurst, "Freedom or Death"

The Eloquent Woman

Pankhurst, known for her theatrics, addressed crowds from a stretcher, broke out of prison, got smuggled into lecture halls to avoid the police, and spoke (as shown in the photo here) from automobiles and pretty much any venue she could find.

Chairing a conference: How did I do? Lessons for chairs from #esnbxl

The Eloquent Woman

Get a feel for the space: I have the preparedness gene, so I checked out photos of the room online and made sure I dropped by the venue the day before when the organizer would be there. I''ll be blogging about the many insights I gained from the speakers about public speaking over the next several weeks, rather than compiling them all into one post.

Famous Speech Friday: Anne Summers on Julia Gillard's misogyny factor

The Eloquent Woman
