Chad Taylor learned how to be a better public speaker when he became a member of the Arts & Science Council Steering Committee. To prepare for his role with the organization, he took a one-day speaking seminar with local public speaking coach Lou Solomon. In the class, he discovered how to tell an authentic, concise story to a group of people. The training has made him better at encouraging people to participate in or give money to the Arts & Science Council. Instead of a sales pitch, Taylor gives a real story about his own personal experience with the arts.
