There's a lot happening this month. Here's what's on the horizon.
I can hear the wind outside my office window. The air is a bit cooler today. Fall seems to be saying it will stay a while. Welcome to November.
There are a bunch of events on the horizon, a lot happening this month. I hope you see something that resonates with you. It would be great to see you soon.
I'm hosting a brand-new workshop this weekend. "All You Need Is Water" is for anyone interested in public speaking, whether you do it for work or outside of work, or maybe you're just curious about it. We've got a great group coming together and there's still a place for you.
This online event kicks off Friday (11/3) evening. I'm excited to welcome everyone and then we'll spend some time getting to know each other. I've become a huge fan of connection over the last year, so it feels right to start with introductions. I'll have plenty to say on Saturday, but I'm excited to do more listening as we begin.
Saturday (11/4) is broken up into two sessions. The first will focus on the craft of public speaking, from preparation to overcoming nerves to building confidence to the power of being yourself. After a break we"ll talk about the business side of things. How do you find opportunities? How do you get paid? How important is social media? What about imposter syndrome? There will be plenty of time to ask questions during both sessions. Whether you consider yourself an amateur, a pro, or simply a person who values communication, it would be awesome to have you in the mix. Learn more.
"The Holidays Are Hard for Me" returns. This topic led to some of my favorite small-group conversations a year ago. I'm excited to bring it back. If the weeks ahead aren't easy for you, because of grief or loneliness or something else, please know you're not alone. Join us Wednesday, November 22, which is the day before Thanksgiving.
Two nights later, on November 24, it's another reunion for the small-group conversation folks. This event is open to anyone who has participated in a previous gathering. (If you sign up for a group between now and then, you are welcome to be part of the reunion after that!)
