This Moved Me Team Presenting Blog Image

Pulling off a team presentation can feel like herding cats.   There are so many voices to integrate – and typically someone with more power swooping in at the last-minute to tell you to change something, or not to say this/that which can really throw you off. And who has time to prep!? All together, no less?! Ugh.   But when a team presentation goes well, it can be …

TMM Blog Image TED Chris Feedback

I had the awesome privilege to go and see the TED Conference Opening Session/Event on Monday night. Well, ok – I wasn’t THERE. I was watching from a movie theater. Pretty much by myself.

TMM Prepare Your Audience Post

A few weeks ago, a friend of mine and I went to an event to see an author (who does a lot of speaking) speak. We were so excited! It turned out he was speaking with another well-known writer. Fun surprise! And, it also turns out that this event was a fundraiser, and included an ask for (additional) money. Not such a fun surprise. I’m a pretty go-with-the-flow kind of …
