SUMMER 2017

Quote 

"Permanence, perseverance and persistence in spite of all obstacles, discouragement, and impossibilities: It is this, that in all things distinguishes the strong soul from the weak". -- Thomas Carlyle

Tip 

When you're speaking, don't over-focus on people who seem to be sending negative nonverbal signals. Instead, focus on your supporters - the people who are visibly engaged and enjoying your presentation. If you find the audience members who are positively interacting with you, you'll be much more confident and relaxed.
