In the next couple of days, I’m going to share some things on public speaking. Not that I’m a master, this is actually an area I’m actively developing and I’m sharing my research with you as I go.
Recently I listened to a podcast by the guys from Manager Tools: The Foundations of Presentation Mastery. Great cast, highly recommended.
The central point of this episode is the fact that you need to be a master of the topic you’re talking about. This is the only way you can actually tell something that is worthwhile.
Spoiler: this is the boring part of a shiny presentation. To become a master you need to spend a lot of time reading and researching. The more you know around your topic, the easier it is to give a solid talk. And it helps with the nerves too.
