January NCWA Meeting Highlights

Laura Smith1Laura Smith’s topic was “Speaking with Relevance.”

“If you feel like you’d rather jump off a cliff than stand in front of a group of people and speak, you’re not alone.  However, in order to establish that all so important platform, writers are being called upon to speak in a variety of venues these days.”

She taught us “the one principle that will make your speaking resonate with all audiences.  Beginner, intermediate, and accomplished speakers will become relatable when they learn to consistently employ this one key ingredient to their public speaking.”

Laura Smith is NCWA’s own Speaker’s Connection Coordinator and is an accomplished speaker and graduate of the Butterworth Communicator’s Institute. She is experienced as a corporate presenter as well as a sought after faith based retreat and event speaker.

Laura’s adventures and daring spirit shine through in her words as a speaker, contributor to magazines, blog articles, and book Questions from a Single Heart. To learn more about Laura visit her website or her blog.


In “The Write Start,” June Temple taught about “Organizing Through Story Boarding.”
