I've done lots of talks and workshops on public speaking, and it's always great to hear from the participants when they've put that learning to use. Here's a recent letter from London I received from someone who has attended my talks on public speaking for the Fabian Women's Network, where I shared advice on what goes into a TED-quality talk last year:A fully packed hall with @dontgetcaught!

I just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks for your excellent Eloquent Woman workshops. I am part of Fabian Women and attended your most recent sessions here in London. I must admit that when I attended the one on giving a TED talk I thought, well it it will be useful even though I can't imagine ever giving an actual TED talk.
But then this April I was asked to give a TEDx talk at TEDx East End's salon here in London. Your advice from the workshops was invaluable, and I also got a lot of pointers from your blog too.
Here it is - I can see much room for improvement, but I never would have been able to even consider it without having attended your workshops.
Thanks so much!
