- Keeping score: The news isn't good but at least people are tracking whether women speakers are included. Here, Healthcare conferences still a sad place for diversity shares the dismal news.
- Size matters, but not the way you think: There is no such thing as a small stage is great encouragement if your audience is small (or didn't show up), and includes great things that happened to speakers with tiny audiences.
- Did you miss? Last week, we shared what speakers in our Talk About the Talk series had to say about getting past practice to a great delivery, and Ireland's Countess Markievicz on 1909's ideal woman was our Famous Speech Friday.
- Workshop alert: I'll be giving a 2.5-hour pre-conference workshop, Inspired by TED: Using TED and TEDMED Tactics to Improve Your Communications, at the October conference of the Society for Healthcare Strategy and Market Development (SHSMD), part of the American Hospital Association. SHSMD members are health care strategists, marketing pros, and communicators. My pre-conference workshop is Sunday morning, October 11, 2015, in Washington, DC. Members and non-members of SHSMD may register, but seats are limited. The early-bird discount on registration ends this Friday. You know what to do.
- About the quote: Many women of today don't realize that the women who fought for the vote saw it as a path to being allowed to speak in public. Suffragette Lucy Stone foresaw this very thing. From our Pinterest board of great quotes for public speakers.
