In last week's episode, we celebrated a year of podcasting by going behind the scenes of the Speaker Sisterhood, a network of public speaking clubs for women that I founded last year. Today we're going to continue that adventure by listening to speeches given by three members of the Northampton, Massachusetts club. You'll hear about zen and tango from Laura Brooks, osteoporosis and climate change from Carla Becker, and creativity from Lynn Simonds. These speeches were recorded on Monday, June 5th, 2017 in one of our regular meetings. The interviews you'll hear after each speech were recorded later that week and I'm excited to share each woman's reflections, growth areas, and words of wisdom. If you'd like to comment on this episode, feel free to email me! Angela@speakersisterhood.com

In my special 50th episode and 1 year anniversary of the podcast, I'm taking you on a magical tour of the Speaker Sisterhood. The Speaker Sisterhood is a network of public speaking clubs for women and a company I founded last year. Until now, what happened in the sisterhood stayed in the sisterhood. On today's episode, you'll get a rare peek into one of our meetings and hear speeches from Amber Ladley and Sandra Costello, both members of the Speaker Sisterhood of Northampton, MA. If you have an interest in becoming a better public speaker, you'll get advice from two women who are in the trenches of learning this skill right now! You'll also hear more about their journey and what they are learning about themselves through this process. As a bonus, I also describe more of what it's been like for me to start this business and why it's so important. If you're ready for an exclusive look behind the scenes of the Speaker Sisterhood, hit play and let's go! 

If you're ready to get your public speaking journey started or if you want to support other women on theirs, get involved! Check out more at www.speakersisterhood.com

Do you use the words "like," "so," and "um" more than you'd like? If so, this episode will teach you how to avoid using these words so you can speak with more confidence and impact. Whether you're preparing for an upcoming presentation, interview, or speech, you'll learn strategies to avoid the use of filler words and create a better experience for you and your audience. Today's guest is Audrey Mann Cronin, an acknowledged communications expert in the tech industry, a women’s advocate, writer, creator of community, Our Digital Daughters, and CEO/founder of Say It Media, Inc.  Now that soft skills like oral communication accounts for the single greatest skill gap, she was motivated to create mobile app LikeSo: Your Personal Speech Coach to empower all of us to be better speakers. This app not only tracks your use of filler words, but helps you improve how you speak! Follow her on Twitter @MannCronin and for LikeSo, on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @LikeSoApp.
