The Eloquent Woman's weekly speaker toolkit

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:
  • Speakers and speechwriters in pictures:  I posted an album on Facebook of photos from my recent trip to London and Oxford, which included a talk to women speakers, a UK session of my workshop for women speakers, and a speechwriting conference. More coming on the blog this week about those adventures.
  • Second to none: My article on Speaking in Your Second Language is in the April edition of Toastmaster, the official magazine of Toastmasters International. Members have the issue now, and non-members may access it here online at the end of the month.
  • Which type of speaking will you try next? My Toastmaster article on that topic is now freely available in the March 2014 issue. If you want to keep growing as a speaker, it's good to take an inventory of the types of speaking you've mastered, and those that remain a challenge.
  • Discounts available now for US workshop: On May 15, I'll be convening another session of Be The Eloquent Woman in Washington, DC. It's a subversive new workshop that helps women executives and public officials learn how women speakers are perceived and how to turn those expectations on their heads with confidence, content and credibility. You can grab a sweet discount by registering by April 11. Go here to read how the first workshop went and what participants had to say.
