This week I’m celebrating my anniversary. Not my wedding or my work anniversary, but the anniversary of an event that makes my work especially meaningful.
Seven years ago, I was recognized by my peers at the National Speakers Association and inducted into the Council of Peers Award for Excellence Speaker Hall of Fame®. In the 42 years the award has been given, only 242 speakers have received it.
It’s one of my proudest professional achievements.
When this time rolls around every year, I usually just high-five myself.
This year, to celebrate, I’m sharing with you exclusive video of my acceptance speech, where I recount a story of how I learned leadership means not watering down your message. (I also mention liquor, pornography and pork.)
