Can Introverts Be Keynote Speakers?
We all have a different story...
I was a stutterer and a people pleaser.
I learned if I opened my mouth to speak it made others uncomfortable.
Guess what? I didn't open my mouth. I was labelled shy.
I joined the army.
I became a sniper. No more yelling. No speaking required.
I became a documentary cameraman. Hiding behind the camera; observing through the lens. No speaking required.
I was embarrassed. I had things to say too but no confidence to say them.
Would my shyness be a life sentence?
I decided no.
I just want you to know that speaking confidently is a set of skills.
If you want this enough. If you are willing to take a lot of imperfect steps. Then this is well within your grasp.
