The Christmas holidays are needed to relax and recharge in preparation for a new year of public speaking.  I love the new year’s resolutions blog from Manner of Speaking  and for a bit of inspiration we are using a talk from Inspirefest 2018. The podcast this week from Dylan Schiemann discusses why a speaker’s ability to read and adjust to different audiences is key to a successful talk.  Enjoy the last of our holiday newsletters and your new year celebrations.  Have a great 2019.
