Public Speaking Webinar series in August

I can’t believe I forgot to blog about this! Shame on me for not following my own advice. Okay, here’s the announcement:

This month I’m doing a four-part Webinar series on Public Speaking Skills, every Thursday morning at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time.  Yes, I am really getting up early enough to do this.

You can join me and learn something or a lot of somethings, and you can sign up for each program individually or for all four for a discount.
