Great brief podcast series by Nick Morgan based on his book Give Your Speech, Change the World
Back in May on his blog Nick Morgan did a series of nine excellent podcasts about public speaking based on his book Give Your Speech, Change the World. In case you missed them, here are the links:
May 2nd: The Only Reason to Give a Speech is to Change the World (4 minutes)
May 5th: Why Is Most Public Speaking So Awful (4 minutes)
May 10th: 10 Quick Tips to Make Your Next Presentation Wildly Successful (7 minutes)
May 12th: The One Thing You Must Do Before Preparing A Speech (3 minutes)
May 17th: The First Two Steps to Crafting a Great Presentation (5 minutes)
May 19th: The Secret of Good Storytelling (7 minutes)
May 23rd: How to Get a Standing Ovation (8 minutes)
May 25th: Your Secret Speaking Weapon - Involving the Audience (8 minutes)
May 31st: Rehearse Away Your Fear (7 minutes)
You can listen to them all in less than an hour. If you’d rather read than listen, take a look at his similar ChangeThis manifesto - Before You Open Your Mouth: The Keys to Great Public Speaking. Of course, you could also read the whole book.
On July 20th Nick started posting another series of podcasts from his more recent book, Trust Me: Four Steps to Authenticity and Charisma. That reminded me I’d meant to post about his earlier series. Enjoy!
