PHPR MD a Double Public Speaking Champion

PHPR MD, Penny Haywood Calder has won her club and area public speaking championships in the Toastmasters International Public Speaking Competition this year. Her winning speech on Extreme Clarity and Brevity for Outstanding Businesses is based on a workshop with renowned Silicon Valley VC, Bill Joos.
She says, "Public speaking is a major plank of our marketing strategy and Bill Joos' workshop at the Edinburgh Entrepreneurs club was an outstanding contribution to our communications skills armoury. As the "go to" VC for Valley entrepreneurs, Bill gets around 97,000 applications for funding. He and his team whittle that down to finance around 50 projects a year, so he knows a thing or two about what makes businesses stand out.
"I enjoyed using the skills he taught and spreading the word to people dedicated to leadership and communications skills training in Toastmasters. Fortunately some of the speech contest judges enjoyed it too!"
Edinburgh-based PHPR will be celebrating 25 years in business later this year. The award-winning company, which gets B2B clients noticed online and in the media, started as a sole trader and incorporated as PHPR Ltd in 1999.
