The weekend read

Did you put out fires this week, communicators? Or just get hosed? I've sifted through the ashes to save my finds of the week, shared on Twitter and curated here just for you. Rise like a phoenix and get the weekend started:
I've got workshops coming up and they're not as taxing as what the fire-fighters go through. Are you in?
  • I'm launching a new workshop, Speechwriting for Communicators, in Washington, DC, on October 9. If you find yourself writing speeches, remarks and talking points, but have never learned how to do it, find out what you may have missed in this one-day session--including how to do more with boring speech occasions. Every participant gets an online toolkit of resources, too. You can save 15 percent by registering by August 29. That's just a week from today, kids.
  • My subversive workshop on women and public speaking, Be The Eloquent Woman, takes place October 23 as a pre-conference session at the European Speechwriters Network conference, being held on October 24. Americans traveling from the US to the conference can use code "eloquentwoman" to get a 200-Euro discount.
I get a warm glow just thinking about the way you keep showing up here on Fridays. Have a great weekend!
