PodiumWise | Tips for advanced presentation skills

When you teach presentation skills you inevitably run into the belief that there are born speakers.  In truth, no such animal exists.

There are born talkers.  These individuals were chatting up the hospital staff within minutes of being born.  But the “gift for gab” is not the same as the ability to deliver a well-organized, well-articulated message.

This distinction is important because born talkers often see no need to work on their speaking skills.  And, people who are not born talkers will get the idea that there is no use in trying to become a good speaker.

Skillful public speaking can be learned by anyone, and must be learned by everyone.
