Confession – I’m not a fan of public speaking. I know, odd for someone in PR, but it’s the truth. I have gotten better at it over the years, like writing this column.
Earlier in 2020, I was named one of Atlanta Magazine’s Women Making A Mark. A huge honor. The award ceremony was canceled due to COVID-19, and I was secretly relieved. No speech, bullet dodged. Now in a turn of events, a webcast virtual ceremony is on the horizon, requiring an anxiety-inducing two-minute speech.
I’ve decided to take cues from The 100. Bite-sized, easily consumable, concise storytelling. Wish me luck!
