The blog gets more fans, & @OliviaMitchell visits

Yesterday was a big one here at The Eloquent Woman: The Eloquent Woman on Facebook reached more than 2,000 fans, and while that was happening, I welcomed New Zealand-based presentation coaches Olivia Mitchell and Tony Burns to Washington, D.C.  We visited the home of a great orator, the recently renovated Abraham Lincoln's cottage in Northwest Washington--a place where he and his family lived during the Civil War, a short commute by horseback to the White House. It's now a property of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.  In this photo, Tony and Olivia are reacting to my suggestion they offer this life-size statue of President Lincoln some speaking advice.  You can find out more about their coaching in Olivia's very good blog, Speaking About Presenting, and on the Speaking About Presenting page on Facebook.  We had a lot of time to share our observations of the work we all do, and to learn about each other's businesses--a real treat for me.
