In case you missed it…  In October WIMHS co-sponsored a three hour interactive “Speaking for Success” workshop presented by Susan Miller, PhD (left) and Julie Barkmeier-Kramer, PhD, UC Davis Dept of ENT (right).  Dr. Miller has over 26 years of experience improving public speaking skills for her clients, including techniques for effective communication, vocal power, vocal health, refining an accent, presenting your best self, assertiveness for women, and challenges in the workplace.  If you want to learn more – here’s a link to Dr. Miller’s company web site:  http://www.voicetrainer.com/

Dr. Miller also recommended the new book “Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking” by Susan Cain.  I’m reading it now, and highly recommend it for both introverts and extroverts!  Check out the Ted Talk by author Susan Cain on the link below… it is only 20 minutes long and perfect for a lunch break:
