Welcome to the 2nd season of Time to Talk. The new tag line is Speak Up, Speak Out and Speak Easy. In this season's podcasts I am going to extend my discussion on the art of communication to include communication issues. You are going to meet some interesting people who I will interview and talk to them about speaking up and speaking out in a speak easy way.  We all need to talk and the better and more freely we can do so, the better it is for us. For a moment just stop and think about some of the things we find it difficult to talk about and the situations where speaking up can be so hard. Mental health has become a big talking point and those with such an issue can find it hard to express themselves. For the people around them it's so difficult to know what to say to those suffering. We will be interviewing someone that can help us talk about anxiety in a forthcoming episode.  How do you communicate in your workplace, what do you say in a job interview to be able to put yourself across in the right way to your prospective employer? This is one more area where we will interview an expert who can help us. Right now I am working on many ideas and arranging to speak with experts in their field who have volunteered their time to be interviewed.  I am thrilled with the direction that Time to Talk is heading and I hope that you will enjoy the journey with me.
