  • Last week was the celebration of 100 years of women’s achievements, all around the world. Mrs. Obama said, "We should always have three friends in our lives -- one who walks ahead who we look up to and we follow; one who walks beside us, who is with us every step of our journeys; and then, one who we reach back for and we bring along after we’ve cleared the way."

  • Excellent news, because as Marcia Reynolds says, “The decade of the woman is Upon us”. As a woman, we should prepare now for the power you will have within the next few years. Intuit Inc commissioned a study to forecast the trends expected to change the way women live and work over the next decade. In addition to the powerful consumer force that women represent today, factors such as urban migration, increased access to education, mobile technologies, micro-credit and low-market entry costs will create a global “she-conomy” where over one billion women will enter the workforce or start businesses by 2020.

  • Elevator speeches are supposed to be the pitch you make  in a 60 second ride in an elevator. It’s all your USPs, CARS and all sorts of other acronyms rolled into a zingy speed presentation that is supposed to  nail that opportunity for  a further meeting, leading to a golden future.    I suspect that if someone started now  to spout about themselves in a crowded lift for 60 seconds straight,  they’re likely  to find  themselves wearing their pod-mate’s latte by the time they reach their floor.   Dorothy Dalton.
  • So what  might work today when the mood  favours subtlety and where we are now expected to give before  we sell ? Yet  the hurdle still remains that we still  only have one  main chance to make a great first impression.    So what we need  now  is a more flexible approach ,  something that conveys the key points without sounding like a  self -absorbed, narcissistic bore  End with an action request, such as asking for a business card,  interview appointment or possibility to call. Update your speech ideas as your situation changes. Practise your telephone technique by leaving a message on your own answer machine. How do you sound?  Awful?  Then you probably  are!  Try again!
