How to become a masterful presenter with Nick Morgan, author of Trust Me

I spent many years speaking to groups across the country, and even
teaching presentation skills to hundreds of salespeople and engineers.

was always fascinating to me since it combined so many favorite
subjects:  motivation, communication, fear, physical movement, design
and creativity.

In today’s podcast with Nick Morgan, I took my learning to a whole new level.  His new book, Trust Me:  Four Steps to Authenticity and Charisma integrates a lot of new research about the brain to help speakers become truly masterful.  We talk about:

  1. Why you do need to practice to appear spontaneous
  2. How your brain drives your body language which can make you lose credibility (or gain it) before you even open your mouth
  3. The specific steps to build great trust and credibility with your audience
  4. Why
    the “Tell em what you are going to tell em, tell em, tell em what you
    told em” presentation structure that has been the standard for years is
    totally wrong.  (I gulped a bit on that one, since I used to teach this)
  5. How to structure the content of your presentation for maximum impact
  6. Where to start if you are considering professional speaking as part of your business model or marketing strategy

  1. Thanks Pamela, I will buy the book on your recommendation. Are you familiar with Garr Reynolds and Presentation Zen? He is my new speaking guru

  2. Thanks for the fantastic convo. He has something helpful to say. Wull surely keep it in mind.

  3. Number 2 is crucial ! You wouldn’t believe how many times I have said to myself “look at this guy why would I do work with him when he doesn’t even (insert … look someone in the eyes, know how to stop fidgeting, know he’s standing too close to me)” etc..
