Many professionals that work in highly technical fields such as scientists and engineers are so specialized in what they do in practical terms that they struggle conveying their complicated ideas and information to the lay public by way of public speaking.
After attending a public speaking event on a topic that Monica Metzler was highly interested in, she disappointingly found by the end of the talk she struggled to absorb any of the information given by the guest speaker, through their complete lack of public speaking skills. Rather than being a critic, Monica embraced a desire to develop non-confrontational programs and workshops to assist public speakers to clearly convey their messages to the audience.
Monica’s professional background is nothing short of impressive. From holding a Masters in Public Policy, practicing in Intellectual Property for a renowned international law firm, managing site logistics for large government corporations, to holding title of President for Illinois Science Council, a non-profit organization she founded in 2006.
