Chat Recap: Storytelling, Public Speaking, and More

Nov 13, 2014 | Chats

PrintOn the second Wednesday in November, we held one of our traditional Q&A chats, where top independent communication professionals shared thought leadership, tips and advice in response to questions submitted by the community (learn how to join us here).

On November 12, 2014, we weighed in with opinions and insight on the following topics of interest:

  1. How many *new* clients can you take on at one time?
  2. “Storytelling” is all the rage, but I prefer posts and articles that get to the point. Is it necessary to frame everything as a story?
  3. Do you have to be good at public speaking to be good at public relations?
  4. If you over-service an account, do you include a “no charge” section on your invoice?
  5. I hate to break it to you, but there are just 7 weeks left in 2014. What’s on your to do list?

A few of the top tweets are highlighted below (followed by a link to the full transcript):
