I know that some of my Twitter friends, like @Marion Chapsal, have an interest in collecting examples of powerful women speakers and leaders.
Having kept an eye out on both male and female speakers at this week's Labour Party conference, I thought that they and other readers might like to see three good efforts from women who spoke at this week's Labour Party conference.
For what it's worth, my general impression is that some of the party's leading women are way ahead of their male brethren when it comes to effective public speaking.
Or is it simply that, even in a party so lacking in charismatic male speakers, women still have to be far better than average to get noticed and rise within the party?
