Tell a Story
"I created an online video course for O'Reilly Media with no prior experience."
"Last August I was contacted by Meghan, an editor at O'Reilly Media and offered the opportunity to create an online video course for them. I was very hesitant about doing it since I had no prior experience."
Notice how both statements convey the same thought, but the second is obviously more interesting and will get the audience more involved with the talk. At least I hope 😉

I've only touched briefly on two of the nine techniques in this post; but hopefully you found this review useful. I highly recommend this book for those interested in giving talks, in case you haven't noticed! Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter for future book recommendations.
