A Comparative Study of Professional Development

Speak at a conference or seminar.

To succeed in business, you must learn how to communicate clearly and compellingly — to your boss, your subordinates or even a room full of complete strangers. You can only go so far in your organization or your field without the ability to do so.

Volunteering to speak at conferences and seminars forces you to develop this skill in real time. More importantly, it gives you a platform from which to trumpet your unique perspective on your industry. With that increased level of notoriety, you’ll set yourself apart from your peers and, thereby, make yourself more valuable.

Not confident in your public speaking ability? No problem. Consider joining a local Toastmasters group to work on honing your oratory skills. You’ll not only develop this hugely important business skill, but you’ll create a swathe of new professional connections as well.
