In order to be heard a speaker must show up, stand up, and speak up.

Judy’s book Show Up – Stand Up – Speak Up (to be released in 2021) is jam-packed with guidelines from more than 25 years as a public speaker. She believes a speaker’s task is to inform, inspire and ignite others to action and their presentations ought to fulfill a need, focus on the significant and leave a footprint to follow.

When a speaker knows their audience, their venue and what’s expected of them they can and will be successful. Each speaker has her or his own style and as they are true to themselves and touch their audience they will be asked to speak again and again.

The book will cover ethics of public speaking. She includes practical points such as a contracts, dress, and the use of dialogue, delivery and speech preparation.

Judy is the author of Public School: Power Prayers. She wrote several chapters in the revised edition of Separate but Equal. Her writings appeared in a newspaper in the Midwest and she has written several on line articles and had a standing column in the educational publication Teachers of Vision magazine for 20 years.
