We have a jam packed 15 minute video with over 40  incredible tips like these listed below and more… Listen and Learn! This is a deep dive into presentation skills and is prefect for viewing by anyone who teaches or presents! Enjoy this very education video. We also chat with the winner of the contest and wrap up with some tips of my own. Special thanks to Carl Franklin and Richard Campbell for running this event!

Sample of Judges comments….

STEPHEN ROSE:

"A little fast in the beginning.  You slowed down.  That's fine.  Poll your audience."

BILLY HOLLIS:

"I really like your stage presence.  You feel professional.  Your voice is a little bit soft.  Make sure you get that mic to the point that you get the right  volume."

PAULA JANUSZKIEWICZ:

"Very professional.  I really enjoyed when you jumped onto the stage and just started talking."

DAVID GIARD:

"Good pacing.  I liked the fact that you presented a problem and wrapped it up at the end."

Mark Minasi was also a judge.
