Try something New

January 2, 2009

Fireworks clusterNew Year is a great time to reflect on not only what you’ve achieved over the past year but it also gives you time to think about what you’d like to achieve during the coming year.

 Have you vowed to try something new this year?

When it comes to public speaking there are a range of things we can do.

1. You can join Toastmasters and learn speaking and leadership skills

2. You can hire a speaking coach to improve you skills

3. You can watch other speakers or join the National Speakers Association

4. You can read books, listen to tapes and watch videos on the subject

5. You can commit to speaking more often – practice makes perfect

6. You can use speaking to generate new business or sell more products

7. You can mentor someone else on their speaking journey.

The New Year is a great time to think about what you’d like to achieve.

There are so many options when it comes to speaking so step outside that comfort zone, write down what you would like to achieve and a date you’d like to achieve it by.

Keep speaking – Carrol
