Speak Like A Pro, but Teach Public Speaking to Eight Year Olds

WEBINAR FOR CHINESE-AMERICAN YOUTH

Yesterday, I presented to my youngest audience in quite some time… 8-year-olds, and live via webinar!  Add to this, a cultural element, as the children were Chinese, first generation Americans, living across the U.S. The benefits of having presented adult training programs (seven tours) in Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore gave me greater understanding and reference to this audience, and of their parents watching in the background. As with any presentation, I do my advanced homework, ...

Bringing Out More Brilliance: Speaking to Mensa, Feb 18, 2017

Last July, I had the distinct honor of addressing the American Mensa Annual Gathering, with a ballroom filled with eager attendees, ready to learn tips on connecting better with others. Potentially a challenging audience for ANY level of public speaker, my mindset was: I’m here to be of service, and offer something you might not know…

Imagine my professional thrill when the convention chair informed me that my session of “7 Secrets to Connect with Anyone” was both the ...
