Introduction (whole audio)
The 5 Principles
7 Lectures 36:32

The first principle is so important and so overlooked. Why does it matter, and how to apply it to your next presentation.

Audience is king

Why practising restrain is good in presentations? From a Confucian way of saying a great point to avoid squandering a speaking opportunity.

Hara hachi bu

We are visual animals and sight has an amazing role in everything, including communication.

Visuals are dominant

An effective presentation moves the audience. Persuades them and prompt them to some action, Decision making is much more than pure logic as it's known since the the birth of rhetoric.

Preview 04:32

One of the most difficult task inexperienced presenters face is how to deliver a presentation. It's easy to fall in to traps and disconnect from the audience with a negative impact on the outcome.

I am passionate about public speaking and I have been delivering training on it since 1995. Seminars, coaching, video-courses, individual sessions for executives or politicians to help people spread their messages successfully. Now with video & social media too. Hundreds of people after attending my seminars become more effective speakers (and happier too).

My training style is very engaging and based on actionable points. I love to quote "Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire".

I have a background in sales and marketing for different multinational companies including IBM and Anixter.

I love my wife, my daughter, helping others and good food.
