Last
year
I
was
voted
most

inspiring
speaker
in
the

SlideShare
Zeitgeist

compe11on.
There
is
one
thing
that
I

have
that
makes
this

possible.
Very

              dis1nc1ve

              hair.

Which
is
easy
to
achieve...
Seriously,
though,

my
secret
is
a

different
one
‐

having
a
different

point
of
view.
Find
the
story
to
tell
that

makes
the
difference.

Knowing
what
your

audience
needs
is
the
most

important
part
of
any

presenta1on.
The
main
thing
to
answer

to
any
person
in
your

audience
is:

 What is in it for me?
Having
the
right

mindset
as
a

presenter
is
also

very
important.

prac1ce?
Loud
reading
in
different

voices
is
great
training.
Listening
to
audio
books
is

great
training.
Listening
to
yourself
is
very

good
training.

Things
you
should
avoid
at

all
costs.
1)   Imita1on.
2)   Reading
your
slides.
3)   Forgedng
the
story.
4)   Blinging
it
...
One
last
quick
1p
about

overcoming
the
fear
of
a

large
audience.
The
audience
is
as
afraid
of

you
as
you
are
of
them.

The
difference
is
how
they

deal
with
it.
Instead
of
seeing
a
crowd

or
a
sea
of
faces,
pick
a

new
person
to
talk
to
with

every
part
of
your
story.
