Communications pros need speaker training, too. Are you more likely to book it for someone else, and leave your own development in second place?

Story
Introduction

I'm seriously happy and happily serious. That means I like to laugh and make people laugh, and that my mind's always working, turning things around. To me, boredom=a dead intellect, and often, my most creative work happens right before I'm about to get bored, a good defense mechanism. In order to banish that on a regular basis, I'm a learning guitarist (with a sweet Martin D-18GE to play) and artist. I write fast, and sometimes well. I have wide-ranging tastes in music, art and travel, another passion. I don't so much tweet about what I am eating as what I am cooking.

The business end: Owner and president of don't get caught, a communications consultancy that makes sure you don't get caught unprepared, speechless or without a message. I do that by helping companies and organizations create strategies for their public communications, often incorporating social media, and with training in social media, public speaking and media interview skills. Former magazine writer, editor and developer who now publishes two blogs: The don't get caught blog on communications and social media strategies and training, and The Eloquent Woman, on women and public speaking. I train both men and women in public speaking and presenting, but the depth of response by women to this blog fascinates me and gratifies me every day. I only wish it weren't needed so.

Winner of 2002 Washington PR Woman of the Year award, with clients in corporate, government, academic and nonprofit sectors; formerly led communications efforts for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and for the two largest scientific professional societies, AAAS and the American Chemical Society. I also served as Deputy Associate Administrator for Communications, Education and Public Affairs at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency during the Clinton Administration.  Active on Facebook, Twitter and Google+. All of that means that, while I'm not scientifically trained, I have spent the vaster part of my career around scientists, engineers, mathematicians, health policy wonks and medical doctors, and I've worked with academic researchers in every discipline. I excel at 5 minutes of relatively in-depth cocktail conversation in your specialty (and can ask intelligent questions, at least), no matter what your specialty is. Try me sometime on that score.
