NEXT. It is a word that defines the speaking profession in 2021. It is today, tomorrow, and the future. It is certainty and uncertainty. It is strategy, planning, and execution. It is both the next big thing and the smallest nuances of how the world is changing.
The next phase in our profession and our careers may be different for each individual, but it cannot be the same as it was before 2020. Especially in this time of radical change and fundamental shifts in society and the economy globally, our focus must be on what comes next, what we plan to do next, and what our clients need next.
