I have just returned from the Professional Speakers Association (PSA) 2008 Convention. This is where speakers go to learn more about the craft and business about making a living from speaking.
Now the PSA is a wonderful sharing organisation. We leave our egos at the hotel entrance and encourage each other to improve.
Naturally being the brilliant speaker I am, I was speaking, but you know that I learned something….I am not quite as good as I think I am.
I can improve
I want to improve
I need to improve
What core skill/talent do you have that you are good at?
My suggestion is to take a class in it, whatever it takes to improve.
Otherwise someone is who more dedicated than you may well leapfrog you.
