How to Improve Your Presentation Skills on Inc.com



I was interviewed for an article on presentation skills for Inc.com and it's now live! I'm one of three experts asked to share our thoughts on how to improve your public speaking skills. I'm not-so-secretly happy to be the first and last expert mentioned in the article. Location, location, location!

The article is packed full of great suggestions. There are also some I don't agree with, and if you've been reading this blog for a while you'll know which ones.

But for the most part, it's informative and gives a lot more tips than most articles like this. Check it out and let me know what you think!

Awesome article; covers a lot of useful info, so congrats! I would, however, question Parnell's suggestion that females speak higher and males speak lower. I think this can help remove the gravel from a woman's voice, but certainly shouldn't be done just to make the audience like her more!

I agree, Cynthia. Sometimes women do force their voices into a lower register, and that can damage our vocal cords (happened to me, actually). But just changing your voice to make people "like" you isn't a productive use of a speaker's time.
