Public speaking is a strong skill that can open many doors. When you talk with courage, confidence, and clearness, you can inspire people around you, make a bigger difference, and help your career grow. A good speaker can motivate others and start changes. By connecting with people personally, you become more than a speaker; you become an inspiration. Public speaking lets you reach more people and make a bigger impact. Whether you're fighting for a cause or sharing new ideas, your voice can change people's minds and have a lasting effect. It shows you're a leader, makes you more well-known, and can make you look like an expert. This can lead to new jobs, promotions, and meeting new people. On this episode, Kim and Louise sit down to chat with Adriana Baer, public speaking coach for leaders and rising leaders about how each of us can harness the power of public speaking. Remember, all great speakers had to start somewhere. With practice and hard work, you can use public speaking to inspire, influence, and reach your goals.

Have you ever felt like you're deciphering a secret code in your quest for the perfect job? That's what we call the "Transparency Dilemma" – a tricky dance between wanting clear job details and the often murky realities of job listings. Navigating and decoding subtle nuances underscores the need for more straightforwardness in the job market.   The clearer companies are with job descriptions, financial compensation, values and expectations, the more empowered you are to make informed career decisions. Transparency isn't just a buzzword; it's essential for matching individuals with roles that align with their aspirations, ensuring mutual satisfaction and success. On this episode, Kim and Louise sit down to chat with Katie Latham,  founder of Changemaker Careers, about restoring humanity to the job search process.
