Public Speaking 101

Almost everyone, at one time or another, has to speak in front of an audience.

And let’s face it, public speaking skills can set someone apart.

As such, over the next week, I plan to do a series of posts about public speaking. Hopefully, everyone will find something of value and share links, tips, and stories of their own.

– The different parts of a speech
– How to use PowerPoint effectively
– How to engage an audience

Along the way I’ll spread about some links to great resources and information related to public speaking.
