So you wanna be a speaker-super-star?

At least once a week, someone asks me for some public speaking tips.

After all, effective speakers move people to action — one of the keys to success in life. It is not easy, though, even if you master power point design and a few hand gestures. When you have more tools and techniques for writing presentations, you also get self-confidence and poise. When you begin to master public speaking the act transforms from a "have-to" into a "get-to". 

MPI's One+ Magazine (the leading trade publication for meeting professionals) ran my column on "Speaker Rehab" in a recent issue. It's my basic advice on how to be the best possible speaker or presenter you can be.
