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:
I'll be leading Be The Eloquent Woman, my day-long workshop on women and public speaking, as a pre-conference session at the European Speechwriter Network's autumn speechwriters and business communicators conference in Amsterdam. The workshop is 23 October and the conference is 24 October. You'll learn how to speak with confidence, content and credibility to subvert the common expectations of women speakers. Please join me!
This week, I'm coaching speakers backstage at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington for TEDMED conference. This will be my fourth time doing it, and I'm excited to see, hear and work with this year's great lineup, which is more than 50 percent female--something only the TEDxWomen conference has achieved among the TED conferences. So much for not being able to find women speakers, and especially in science and medicine.
