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:
- Don't chew the fat: If you spend a lot of time talking about how you worry how fat you'll look before speaking--or anything else--you're not helping yourself or other women. Read about the perils of fat talk.
- Stop fixing the women: Kleiner Perkins gave Ellen Pao coaching to help her hone her speaking skills, but this writer says that her trial is not about women lacking confidence.
- The wardrobe for TED speakers: This article on dressing for TED shares insights from men and women speakers.
- Did you miss? I collected 32 historic speeches by women for Women's History Month, and I urged you to register before all the seats are gone for my two public speaking events in England, coming up in April.
- About the quote: Sarah Silverman puts her finger on an important thing for eloquent women to remember. From our Pinterest board of great quotes for public speakers.
