The Spoken Word: A Vital Tool for EA’s

WE-2Earlier this month I had the chance to speak WashingtonExec’s Executive Assistant Committee Dinner. My topic — “Improving Your Public Speaking Skills.” I shared some tips on how the EA’s could improve their own presentations (tip #1: writing for the eye is fundamentally different than writing for the ear.) I also shared my thoughts on ways they could help their principals improve their speeches (Start by making sure his or her speech is not generic, but instead fine tune it to resonate with a specific audience.)

My thanks to EA Committee Chair Jana DiCarlo, Founder & Principal of Backbone, LLC, for the invitation. A terrific group of listeners, armed with great questions and comments.
