Through regular exercise! Just like building muscle through consistent workouts – consistent cerebral exercise is our method!
Through my TWICE SHOT speaking engagements, I address these important topics:
Resilience | Courageous Conversations | Leadership | Brave Decisions | PTSD and Mental Health
I consistently read the latest information, researching findings and theories on my topics of expertise.
Whilst professional speaking is an art that must be studied, practiced, and refined, so you can continue to improve your delivery and incorporate the latest developments within your field of work.
Attending the recent 2023 ‘Fresh’ convention for Professional Speakers Australia (PSA)— the peak body for Australian speakers—held in Melbourne, March 24-27, I was able to grow my knowledge and skills.
As Stephen Covey advocates in his legendary book “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People”, I was following habit 7, ‘Sharpen the Saw.’ I was learning from the best of the best on the Australian and international speaking circuit.
The photograph included, taken at the PSA Gala Awards Dinner, features me with Helen MacDonald CSP, CVP, and Gary Nairn AO. Helen was for many years the chair of the prestigious Kerrie Nairn Scholarship, awarded to develop an emerging speaker, and named in honour of Gary’s late wife. Helen and Gary have had a profound positive influence on my life and speaking when in 2015 I was awarded the Kerrie Nairn Scholarship. This honour rapidly sharpened my saw!
Like all serious artists, I’m never completely satisfied with my presentations. This drive to improve keeps me sharp, keeps me learning, and keeps me at the forefront of my speaking topics. Hence, my audiences are highly engaged and enthusiastic – a ‘win-win’ for all involved!
For those aspiring to be a Professional Speaker, I strongly encourage you join Professional Speakers Australia to start your journey – the sharpening of your saw is guaranteed.
In closing, I enthusiastically congratulate Alfred Chidembo PhD who is PSA’s 2023 Kerrie Nairn Scholarship awardee. Alfred, I look very forward to following your scholarship journey and hearing you speak at PSA’s 2024 convention in Perth.
