Speaking & Making Presentations/Expert Profile

Ask A Question


I can answer questions about organizing and delivering effective presentations or speeches. It doesn`t matter if you`re trying to persuade your boss to begin a new project, or trying to persuade a friend to join you on a trip to Las Vegas. In either case, you`ll need to be clear, concise, interesting, and persuasive.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Abraham Lincoln's "Gettysburg Address" and Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I have a dream" speech are frequently mentioned as two of the greatest speeches ever delivered. The "Gettysburg Address" was three and a half minutes long - and the "I have a dream" speech was six and a half minutes. Why, then, do YOU have to talk for 45 minutes to get your point across?! :-)
