"Effective Speaking"

There are a lot of self-help books available today that can guide you in effective speaking. In my 48(+) years of being self-employed I have had numerous occasions to learn from the best, such as the Dale Carnegie courses that I took back in 1971, at the age of only 24 years. The lessons learned have helped me throughout my life and it is my mission to help those who want to experience the joys of self-employment and entrepreneurship.

Effective speaking can be fun and beneficial in developing your career goals. It can also be easier than you would believe. Most professional speakers have learned that the biggest hurdle is to be able to relax and to be at ease with your audience. The other advice that is offered is to speak about something you enjoy and that you passionate about. Also, speak from your heart and not from note cards. It will make a big difference in how your audience relates to you and your "story".

I invite you to join me this Wednesday morning and to experience the power in doing business with those you know, like and trust, those being, the members of the Chapel Hill Leads Group.

Support the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina

Attention CHLG Members - The Chapel Hill Leads Group's goal is to raise 100+ boxes of cereal a month. If everyone brought one box of cereal to two meetings this month, the Chapel Hill Leads Group would easily exceed the 100 boxes of cereal goal.
