I am a shy type person so speaking up especially in public is always a challenge for me. Thanks for a piece of advice.

Yeah I need to pin this somewhere! I sometimes loose the thread right at the beginning of meetings because of some “problems” that have happened.

It’s good to gather your thoughts, I always feel so unprepared and self-conscious when I stumble into a situation without planning!

Nice advice and very empowering! I agree that all of our voices should be heard but not everyone has enough confidence. I am sure this short but helpful post will empower someone to use their voice!

Perfect advice! As someone that has been in Corporate America for over 10 years, I agree with this. Be bold, know your stuff, and speak up!
