public speaking

Leaders are leaders right? How much should they care what other people think?

On the May 15, 2016 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, Barbara Nemko and I talk about how to deal with difficult people. We also talk about how to become an excellent public speaker.

Say it loud and proud with Toastmasters

May 14, 2014


When you hear a really good speech, it’s easy to assume that the speaker has some inherent talent for it. But in fact, it’s a skill, and one organization has decided to break it down for people so they can learn it.  It’s called Toastmasters and it’s a public speaking organization that’s over 90 years old with nearly 300,000 members across the globe.

Each week, a local  branch meets downtown on Mission street. Their tagline? “Where Leaders Are Made,” and tonight there are 10 people hoping they will be the next ones.
