Find concrete speaking advice on The Eloquent Woman on Facebook

If you're not a fan of The Eloquent Woman on Facebook, you're missing a big behind-the-scenes community of men and women interested in improving their public speaking, whether that's everyday talking or delivering a major speech. I've been using the page to ask readers questions about their opinions on speaker issues, and often will incorporate their views in future blog posts once the discussion's done.  On Tuesdays, I throw it open for questions in a series I'm calling "Talk to me Tuesday." 
Check out this week's "Talk to me Tuesday" discussion, which yielded questions about speaking too fast and about getting a dry mouth, which leads (in this case) to stumbling over words.  Emily Culbertson commented, "These are the best threads for concrete speaking advice. Thank you, Denise!"

Fans of The Eloquent Woman on Facebook also can participate on the page by:
  • Posting photos of themselves speaking, with details about where, when and to whom;
  • Posting video of speeches or presentations, or video questions; and
  • Sharing slides from presentations, using our SlideShare application.  You also can use this to find other good, shared presentations that you can adapt to your own uses.
Stop by, add your questions, post a photo or video and see what's behind the blog.  I welcome your feedback on the page and the blog; just leave it in the comments.
