Do you want to make sure that your audience remembers you and your message long after the event is over? Today, speaker coach Mary Snyder joins Kathi for the second part of their discussion on how to motivate your audience to move.

These two successful speakers can help you improve your effectiveness with these tips:

Mary Snyder

Speaker and Podcaster

I’m Mary – a true southerner who loves the indoors. Yes, that’s right; the indoors. I like a comfortable chair and some AC. Have you been to the South in the summer? It’s like living in hot soup. I do appreciate a great view and enjoy sipping a sparkling soda on my deck, but only when the humidity is low and the temperature is comfortable.

I’m passionate about my Jesus, my people, travel, my work with speakers, and finding the next great thing. Whether gadget, app, tool, or resource; I’m an early adopter! When I’m not working, you’ll find me snuggled up on the couch with my guy and our two rescue dogs, Butch and Toby, reading a great business book.
