Master The Art of Public Speaking with Gerthrode Charlotte Tan-Mabilog

Public speaking is more than just words. It is impacting lives through your voice. Here is an article about a special lecture on public speaking with Gerthrode Charlotte Tan-Mabilog.

You can speak well if your tongue can deliver the message of your heart. – John Ford

Everyone can speak (except for differently abled pips). Everyone has something to speak about. But not all can get the message across as effective and clear as it should be. #StruggleIsReal

As an influencer, writing your thoughts effectively has its pack of scores. But speaking them to a live audience is a sure different story. Many of us fail including me in representing our thoughts and ideas in a public speech. Speaking in public is more than just presenting entertaining visuals. It is sharing one’s heart and mind passionately to people.

Read this as my digital influencer’s confession… – Blessed is the influence of one true, loving human soul on another. George Eliot
