Writing or Speaking?

Writing or Speaking?

"Being able to write well is one thing... but it's the speaking. That's where you really make an impact, where promotions are decided and decisions made about your career progression..."

Not my words.

These are the words of a prospective new client I was speaking with the other day.

But so true!

Of course good writing skills are important - in terms of clarity, grammar, spelling and more.

But they're a baseline expectation, rarely a differentiator.

Unless you're a writer!

The ability to speak in a clear, compelling, convincing, engaging and or inspiring way?

I'd argue these are WAY more important skills in terms of career progression.

Whether in meetings, at interview, presenting, in conversation and/or networking.

Yet they remain undervalued skills in the education system - at all levels...

Working through this video program [High Impact Speaking] has made a huge difference to my speaking. After my conference presentation, I had so many executives telling me: 'I want you to come and work for my organization'.... I can't count how many people told me my presentation was THE best.
