I recently had the pleasure of chatting with Sally about public speaking. You can listen to our talk here.
We has a free-flowing discussion and touched on several topics. Among them were the following:
1. My journey from the law to professional speaking.
2. The value of narrative when it comes to persuasion.
3. Toastmasters and the benefits of having an audience where you can experiment with your public speaking.
4. Your key message and the importance of “Why?”
5. The five “Fs” from your life that audiences love.

Very interesting talk. In order to be a good speaker it is necessary to also be an engaging storyteller and to be able to constantly experiment with different audiences to reinvent yourself, all of which are also key attributes of a strong but evolving personal and professional brand. This article
