In England, I'm on the hot seat, and sharing TED talk insights

In two weeks' time, I'll be in London and Cambridge, England, for two public speaking events. Here's an insider secret: These organizations put on my favorite public speaking events, which is why I come back to them again and again. You still have time to register and seats are available, though they're going fast. Please join me at:
  • Public Speaking Question Time with Denise Graveline, an April 9 event for members of the Fabian Women's Network, in London at FWN headquarters. This group always has great questions about public speaking, so we've decided to give them the floor in a great British tradition in which I'm on the hot seat. I'll be bringing the best of their questions right back here to the blog, but we'd love to see you in person at this sure to be lively event. Go here to register; registration is free, but open only to members of FWN.
  • What Goes Into A TED-quality Talk, an all-day pre-conference workshop at the Spring Speechwriters & Business Communicators Conference in Cambridge, UK. This workshop will walk you through what does and doesn't go into a TED-style talk, with ideas and inspiration for writing and planning your own talk. The workshop is on April 15, and the conference follows on April 16-17; you can register for just the workshop, just the conference, or both, and if the conference is full, you can still register for the workshop as long as seats remain. Go to the workshop link for a description and the conference link to register. Use code EloquentTED to get a £100 discount at registration.
I'm looking forward to seeing you across the pond...
