Ep. 12 – Melissa Ruiz, Public Speaking Coach and Founder of Show & Tell
Welcome Back!!! Today we have the wonderful Melissa Ruiz who is a public speaking coach, author, motivational speaker, and the list goes on…
On this episode Melissa tells us her story from growing up and how she went from beauty pageant runner up to student advisor to public speaking coach. She has a very hands on approach but allows you to grow and get out of your comfort zone to really develop and tell your story. This is one of the reasons she started her public speaking/ storytelling course called Show & Tell .
This episode was important to me because it marks my comeback to recording for the podcast and kicks off Hispanic Heritage Month. It’s important for the LatinX community to perfect their story to really communicate their message to achieve change, progress and justice.
Throughout the episode there are nuggets of helpful and useful information which can help all of us in our own personal journey. Between switching roles and finding our transferable skills to getting in front of an audience to tell your story, listening to this episode will not disappoint.
