In today’s era of Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube, having a public presence, brand, and followers is a must.  And even traditionally published authors, and journalists for “name” publications — let alone self-published or small-press authors and freelance writers — are now required to do their own work promoting themselves publicly.   Not to mention the fact that one of the best ways of earning or supplementing a writer’s income is to hit the lecture circuit, conferences, and speaking gigs.

But what if the very idea of standing up in front of a live audience is enough to make you need a trigger warning?  How does one stare into the steely eyes of a TV or internet camera without freezing up?   And even if you’re not afraid of standing up and giving a speech, how do you put your best foot forward, convey what you want to say artfully and entertainingly, make a good impression, and have the audience eating out of the palm of your hand?

This month, IWOSC is proud to present veteran public speaking coach and renowned motivational expert CLINTON YOUNG, as he shares some top tips, ideas, and secrets. Mr. Young gives highly sought-after speaking clinics and seminars across the country, and we are indeed lucky to have him scratching the tip of his formidable iceberg of expertise, for this month’s motivational and inspirational program.

Our special guest is:
