Lunch and Learn
Do you have a topic your employees want to hear? Public speaking? How to present yourself professionally? Active listening skills? Vocal hygiene? Telephone skills? Effective communication in the workplace? Networking? Let's talk about bringing these educational and practical topics to your workplace. Call 410.356.5666 to see how Successfully Speaking can help your organization.

I hope you are enjoying your summer so far. 
Have a Happy 4th of July!

Here are some collections I have found on some of the important skills for presenting yourself professionally. Enjoy!
Email Etiquette 
It's always good to get a refresher on email etiquette. Many of us in our busy day, respond too quickly and create embarrassing situations.

I once received a letter from a prospective corporate client who did not realize that a competitor's proposal and fees was at the bottom of their email! Oops! 

Or have you ever intended to comment to a colleague about a matter and mistakenly hit "reply all"? Ouch!

Common Mistakes That Detract from Your Image
There are some common errors that many educated people make that undermine their professional image. Many of us learned these in our schooling, but perhaps weren't paying attention or forgot about it. Check out some of these confusing words that can make you sound less intelligent. Unfair as it might be, we make an impression by the way we speak!

Contact us at Successfully Speaking to learn how to ensure you are making a positive professional image.
Great Tips for Giving a Memorable Presentation

Many of you know I am a great fan of the TED Talks. Chris Anderson, the curator of TED, wrote an article in 2013 that was reprinted in the Harvard Business Review and shared by Citrix.
