Zach Leatherman presents A Hypocrite’s Guide to Public Speaking
This morning item 31 of 65 on my Google Alert on public speaking was a 17-minute YouTube video of a presentation by Zach Leatherman which humorously covers the following list:
1] Picking the right topic.
2] Don’t start your talk with an apology.
3] Preparation is probably the most important thing.
4] Be concise.
5] The audience is your ally.
6] The most inclusive language is clean language.
7] Relax. Take a deep breath.
8] Have a backup plan.
9] Engage the audience.
10] Don’t blindly follow someone else’s rules.
