Vital Signs: Speak Up - PPA Today

Vital Signs: Speak Up


Dear PPA Member,

Who inspires you? How can you inspire others? I think it starts by sharing what you know. In fact, I bet that many of the speakers you consider most compelling didn't start their careers by saying, "I want to be a great speaker!" But I believe that they all said, "I want to share what I know with others."

So how do you start sharing your knowledge with others?

Well, the Beatles didn't begin by playing at Shea Stadium. They began with small gigs in Liverpool and Hamburg. They started small, but dreamed big. They practiced. Got better. Practiced some more. Got even better.

You may not want to play Shea Stadium, but if you want to be a great speaker, you need to start somewhere. This week's Vital Signs will give you some helpful tips on where to begin. Where will you end up? Well, Lennon and McCartney mentioned something about the long and winding road...
