A Professional’s Search For Meaning

We see inspirational quotes on social media all the time, as a friend commented to me earlier today.

But what do they really MEAN?

This is not to disparage them - but to say that viewed in the abstract, they lose much of their impact.

Context is all.

Same is true for all messaging with the spoken word - if it’s to be impactful.

Yes we need clarity of messaging (and the clearer the better).

Yes those messages need to be delivered.

But the real question is: what will they MEAN?

For your client.

For your team.

For your child.

I help people with public speaking.

True enough.

But #publicspeaking is just a phrase.

It’s merely a hashtag.

More deeply, it means helping with communication…

With forging a connection - between speaker and listener.

A connection through which relevant meaning - whether humorous or serious, personal or professional, work-related or not - can be explored, distilled and transferred.

Because when we speak and listen, we cease to be alone.

Identify, connect with and convey the TRUE meaning of your thoughts, ideas and feelings and you’re a speaker, my friend.

You’re a leader.

Speak soon.

In 2018, Simon coached me with public speaking, style, helped write my pitch, and gave me every imaginable tip to manage my nerves, present with esteem, conviction and win over the audience - with his help I went on to pitch to 3,000 people and win the World Social Enterprise competition. I cannot recommend him more highly to any CEO or senior executive looking to perfect their public speaking and win over an audience.
