Public speaking is like a reality check.
When writing my books, I certainly believe or at least hope they will be interesting and useful for my readers. But that is more like assumption based on some feedback and reviews I receive.
While speaking to people, sharing my knowledge and ideas and getting immediate reaction and response is the real measure of their value.
In the last few months, before coronavirus struck, I talked as an Enrichment speaker on the Royal Caribbean cruises – and that was fantastic! I got a lot of testimonials and all my books that I brought on board were sold out fast.
As an enrichment speaker for the Royal Caribbean I was not going to conduct university style lectures. being on holiday, people prefer relaxing but educational chat, free discussion, opportunity not only for learning but for expressing their views as well.
Pictures say more than words, isn’t it?
