Just got better!

I’ve been a long-term listener to this podcast and I keep coming back for the straightforward, well-explained business advice. The latest episode “How to Elevate Your Public Speaking with Pat Quinn” was definitely the best yet. It might have been the fact that I didn’t expect a different format to usual (I do enjoy the usual format), but having a “live” pitch and critique was great. I’ve done that myself in business school and it’s nerve wracking, so I’m hugely grateful to Pastor John for sharing that experience. I think I’m a pretty good public speaker, but I learned some really interesting and hugely useful tips to use in the future. Even more than usual, I’m looking forward to the next episode.
