Public Speaking and Keynote Presentations

Ginny Speaking at the Centre for Social Innovation“When I was just forteen I asked my dad for a gift, but not just any gift. I had heard about a book by some guy called Dale Carnegie on public speaking. I knew nothing about the guy and very little about what my future looked like. What I did know was that I wanted to learn a powerful skill, the kind of skill that seemed to be reserved for men. So I asked my dad to get me a copy of Public Speaking and Influencing Men in Business. I read it from cover to cover, practiced all the exercises again and again and declared myself a public speaking expert. I have since had over 20 years to test my expertise, sometimes embarrass myself, and to learn from my mistakes. One of my key learnings has been to only ever speak on topics that I am truly passionate about.

Public speaking, to me, is just like play. It has all three of my favorite elements in a fun and engaging game: the right amount of challenge, responsibility towards my teammates (my audience), and the opportunity to laugh, scream, cry and laugh again, in good company.” Ginny.
