I remember the earthquake of 1986 in El Salvador, I was 11y old and from one day to the next, my life was never the same!
In one year, I have learned A LOT about public speaking. I became member of Toastmasters Antwerp and in the meantime, together with some friends, I started a non-profit initiative (Xten-Encuentros para crecer) to give conferences to Spanish speaking women.
I have learned from books, watching TED talks and listening to my toastmasters-fellows, but MOSTLY from being on stage.
The following tips have helped me a lot. I put them in practice and worked! Let me share them with you:

One year ago, I promised myself not to try “the sweatpants” AGAIN with my daughter (I shared already the story in a Previous post), but during the Christmas holidays, having walking tours in the forest everyday, I had no other option than “the sweatpants” as possible outfit. I put them in the luggage as a “just in case” solution.
