Presentation Resource: SpeakerNetNews

Every Friday I look forward to the e-mail I get from SpeakerNetNews. This is one of the publications I signed up for even before I started my speaking career. Each week, speakers from all situations share their best ideas, what they are learning, and ask for help from others. I have submitted many tips and have received a warm response from readers. If speaking is a significant part of your role, I suggest you sign up for this newsletter. There is no cost to sign up, and you will receive tremendous value within the first few issues. Go to and sign up now.
