When you hear the word "diversity," what do you think of? Race? Religion? Age? Gender? On today's episode, we're framing diversity as those special ingredients that make you who you are. It's those ingredients that also help you to connect with others in various environments and groups and make you a dynamic speaker. My guest today is a leader, speaker, author, and coach. Amy C. Waninger is the Founder and CEO of Lead at Any Level LLC, which helps busy professionals develop skills in leadership, diversity and inclusion, and career management. She is the author of Network Beyond Bias: Making Diversity a Competitive Advantage for Your CareerWhen speaking to audiences, how do you deal with people who are different than you? How do you relate to them? How do you use your special ingredients to build a connection? We cover all this and more on today's show. 
 
Also mentioned on the show, I share that I am taking the summer off from the podcast and will be back with new episodes in September. If you have any episode or guest ideas, please email me at angela@speakersisterhood.com.

Speakers often mistake their “norm” as a commonality that they share with many other speakers. In reality, your “norm” is actually your unique DNA. Every speaker has their own unique story/journey and learning how to tell it is absolutely crucial in today’s public speaking environment. On today's show, I interview Travis Thomas, a professional public speaker and seasoned improv performer. Travis has performed in front of thousands of people and trained dozens of organizations like the Chicago Cubs, Boston Red Sox, US Soccer, Gatorade, PepsiCo., and Under Armour. On this episode, you'll learn how being "normal" can actually be the key to your success, how to use your story to create a connection with the audience, and how to use trust, vulnerability, and authenticity to be a better public speaker. You can learn more about Travis at http://liveyesand.com and get his book, 3 Words for Getting Unstuck: Live Yes, And!
