Episode #250: How to Prepare a Talk When You’re Asked to Speak

Are you a reluctant speaker like our co-host Erin MacPherson? Public speaking is the number #1 fear of the majority of people in the world. But we find more and more that God asks us to share our story or expertise with small and large groups even when we don’t consider ourselves a speaker. Kathi is here to give you the same pep talk she gives to Erin every time she is asked to speak and majorly helpful tips that will get you past the scared and help you focus on what you are supposed to share. You never know when you’ll be asked to speak. Listen in and be prepared! Plus this episode is super fun.

Kathi and Erin mention Kathi’s podcast for speakers and writers. The Communicator Academy Podcast can be found here.
