Hirsch`s Umhlanga recently hosted their monthly Business Networking morning with guest speaker Glenda Slade CEO of Iconverse. Slade trained through the Durban Speech Academy and after leaving the academy performed on stage for a couple of years, before moving into radio as a presenter and newsreader on both the former Radio Port Natal and the English Service. She also spent some time in television in Johannesburg working on a variety of programs such as Special Assignment, children’s programs, and the first live variety program Sunbeams and Cucumbers.
Said Slade “The ability to speak well can enhance your career, clinch a sale or sell a point of view.” She echoed the sentiments that people first have to buy you – before they begin to buy your product, your ideas, your information or instructions. “Developing a confident voice, a warm rapport with people, using the correct body language will help you to “sell” yourself first.” She explained.
