How To Present A Technical Subject

Technical professionals have a unique challenge when faced with presenting technical subjects. How much technical jargon should you include to build credibility versus leaving it out to maximise clarity and understanding?

Here is a great example of someone explaining a very technical subject in a way that any lay person can understand. He did it by looking at the audience and keeping it simple and accessible.

How NOT to speak in public

In my cornerstone event, Unleash The Speaker Within, I teach people the art and science of how to speak in public. This is the antithesis – How NOT to speak in public. That being said, this was an elected official in the United States – can you believe it?!?

Day 1 Of Unleash The Speaker Within

Dave and I are at it in Melbourne at the first inaugural edition of Unleash The Speaker Within. It’s filled with people who want to get over their fears of public speaking, improve or perfect their oratory skills. We had several preview events called How To Become A Corporate Rockstar to fill this event – unfortunately we’re not having any more this calendar year, but stay tuned with this blog to find out more about how to turn a back-breaking business or career into a value-based model that rewards you beyond your wildest dreams.

Day 1 of Unleash The Speaker Within is all about getting out of your spectator’s seat and on to the stage as a speaker. We’re covering preparation checklists and strategies, how to open a presentation, styles and types of presentations as well as different kinds of audiences so you speak to people who are predisposed to listen and enjoy what you have to say.

If you want to develop this kind of confidence and professional stature, stay tuned for our upcoming events – we’re going to cover a LOT more than just public speaking!

Public speaking is one of the most valuable skills you can have. Two of the participants are David Conroy and Gerard Spriet who filmed this YouTube video testimonial. As you can see, they are already quite eloquent and speak convincingly, but they’re looking for that extra edge to make every presentation and performance memorable and fun!
