Fans of The Eloquent Woman on Facebook see links to good reads, resources and ideas from other sources there, in addition to posts from the blog. But you won't miss a thing, since I'm summarizing that extra content and putting it here on the blog for all readers to see. Here's what I shared in the week just past:
- Voice of experience: From Toastmasters to confident body language. Chloe Gray shares how I finally got over my fear of public speaking.
- Small slides: Worried about how your slides will look on a mobile device? Prezi shares how to be a star of the small screen.
- Don't lean in. Rein in: Harvard Business Review shares the 7 imperatives to keeping meetings on track.
- Not so transparent: In Women have something to say about technology. Are you listening? the author points to the opaque proposal process for conference speakers as one barrier to seeing more women on the program.
- What's the buzz? My article for Toastmasters on 2013's buzzworthy speakers is out.
- About the quote: In her inaugural address as Ireland's first woman president, Mary Robinson spoke up for women's voices. From our Pinterest board of great quotes by eloquent women, and the Famous Speech Friday post about Robinson's speech.
- Coming up this week on the blog are another "Inside Voice" interview with a physician and book author about her public speaking, and a rousing feminist speech that has inspired a pop music idol.
