Dale Carnegie of Central and Northern Alabama president, Nancy Covert, was recently featured on Talk of Alabama to talk about the importance of being a polished and professional public speaker.

Most Americans have a fear of public speaking. In fact, many will cite a preference for being in the coffin over giving the eulogy. It’s a fear that has plagued great business men and women for decades and a skill that can make or break any business professional at any level of an organization.

Dale Carnegie felt that being a successful public speaker wasn’t a skill that individuals are born with; it is a trait that has to be developed and nurtured. Developing this skill, Mr. Carnegie felt, was key to any individual being successful in business, from and entry level employee sharing ideas with colleagues to a sales person getting buy in from a customer to a CEO gaining cooperation from his team. Every employee at every level stands to improve his or her career by nurturing this skill.
