Sam Davidson's blog

Every Tuesday, I write.

I share an idea I’ve come up with, a struggle I’m wrestling with, a puzzle I’m turning over in my head, or a story that I think the world needs to hear. You can sign up to get these emailed to you each Tuesday morning by clicking here

On Thursdays, I write at Batch about a business idea or concept, usually through the lens of my day-to-day work as co-founder and CEO or from the viewpoint and lessons learned of our purveyors. Follow along here

On LinkedIn and Twitter I often toss out quick thoughts and ideas that aren’t ready for longer posts just yet or something that I’m seeking feedback on. 

If you'd like to get more ideas like these sent to you each day, it's easy: sign up here.


 

Speaking Event: Toastmasters International Convention

I'm very excited to announce that I'll be speaking at the Toastmasters International Convention this August in Orlando. This is a gathering of thousands of speakers who are seeking to get better at their craft. My session is:

From Public Speaker to Professional Speaker: What’s Your Story?

Become a professional speaker by developing a personal story — one with an authentic and useful message for audiences. Sam, a professional speaker and entrepreneur, helps you understand the core elements of a good personal story and discover ways to turn that story into marketable speeches. He explains how to:

  • Find your voice and tell a story that is authentic, timely and relevant
  • Define your niche market and advertise yourself within it
  • Create speaking opportunities for yourself

If you've ever wanted to hone your speaking skills, your local Toastmasters organization is a great way to do that. This convention in August is also a great way to soak in lots of information that will improve your skills on stage. See you in Orlando!
