Speak up for success
On May 28th there was an excellent article by Nancy Buffington in the Idaho Business Review titled Speaking Up for Success. In it she discussed five ways that effective public speaking can help you and your business, which were:
1. Gain clients
2. Make connections
3. Represent your skills
4. Harness the power of group-think
5. Increase opportunities
She cited results from a 2011 study in the Holmes Report about both the costs of poor business communication, and the benefits of effective communication.
It is great to see a positive article that discusses benefits rather than opening with the usual drivel about how public speaking allegedly is our greatest fear.
