The number one reason why people are lousy speakers is because they don’t have anything to say. If you have something burning inside, you’ll find a way to get it out and get it across.
The number two reason why people are lousy speakers is because they are lousy speakers. They don’t know the mechanics. They don’t know their material. They don’t know how to present – use Prezi, Powerpoint, Keynote, flip charts and what not.
There’s a Meetup in the Bay Area of San Jose (yes, I know the way so please stop asking 😎 devoted to becoming a better speaker AND specifically helping techies, social media types and bloggers improve their skills.
If you are not in the Bay Area, we record them webinar style and make them available soon after the event.
If you are … then come join me, us in Palo Alto.
The next topic is Debrief of New Year’s Speaking Gig Aboard Luxury Cruise Celebrity. on January 20th.
Join, come, learn … and go home a better speaker.
