Using a thesaurus to liven up your language in speaking and writing can help you sound smarter. When you wear reading glasses, you can also look smarter.

Here’s a short speech I gave at Albuquerque Challenge Toastmasters Club on “Our Friend the Thesaurus.” For those of you who don’t know Patricia Fripp, referenced in this speech, in addition to being a renowned keynote speaker, she also coaches speakers and executives to improve their presentation skills.

If you want to become a better speaker, join us at an Albuquerque Challenge club meeting, the 2nd and 4th Saturday mornings of every month from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. More information at the Albuquerque Challenge website!
