My Top 10 Public Speaking Blogs of 2023

Looking to make a big splash professionally next year? Here's some help: my Top 10 Public Speaking Blogs of 2023.

How do you make a difference when you speak in your job? There's the rub (as Hamlet might say, meaning: yeah, that's the challenge)!

At least this year saw us on firmer ground professionally as to where we're delivering our pitches, speeches, and presentations.

And of course, presenting in-person or speaking virtually both demand our best.
