SmartTalkers, that is. SmartTalk ( begins on Wednesday, and I can’t wait!

Two groups of intrepid participants have signed up to try out this new pilot program I’m launching in Salt Lake City this year. SmartTalkers will do two things: they will learn how to bust through some of the mediocrity we all tolerate in presentations these days, and they will practice, practice, practice. It’ll be a workout for the brain and the mouth! And it’ll be fun, of course.

The SmartTalk groups comprise interesting and diverse professionals, yet all are successful and ambitious. I’m honored to be leading these groups and to have this opportunity to enhance some already very talented skill sets.

So watch out, there could be a professional in your office who starts to knock your socks off in the coming months! Let’s hope so …
