303: Public Speaking Rules – Do you break them or follow them? with Alan Hoffler

Robert Ferguson and Sarah Jo Crawford discuss the 8 “P”s of public speaking. Some call them rules and always follow them and others delight in breaking these 8 P’s. And then there’s the bonus “P”.

Do you follow the public speaking rules or break them?

Robert interviews Alan Hoffler, the author of “Presentation Sin: The Practical Guide to Stop Offending (and Start Impressing) Your Audience “. Robert’s copy of the book is dog-eared because he’s constantly referring to the ideas.

In this 3rd KEY5Podcast in the 3rd season, Alan shares some of his presentation “sins”. Robert and Alan talk about what to do if you don’t have a great voice as a presenter, Alan shares some of his observations of political candidates, their posture and how it impacts their presentations, and how to avoid predictability and more.
