“I always say the best speeches are one message, one conversation, to one person.” – Jacqueline Nagle

“The whole intention of speaking is to move an audience from where they are now, to where you want them to be, to where they never expected to be.” – Jacqueline Nagle

“What happens when you can deliver flawlessly and you can deliver without notes, whether it’s a speech or a workshop, is people trust you. There’s this unconscious recognition that you must know your things.” – Jacqueline Nagle
