Podcast Highlights

Length: 15 minutes, 29 seconds

Although he hasn’t had any formal training in public speaking, Al Rubeling now speaks for a living, both as a professor and in his business as an architect. One of the things that he has learned through his speaking experiences is that there is no need to be nervous, he says. You “just have a conversation with people, speak what’s on your mind or read what you have to read and don’t rush it.”

In this episode, he talks about “speaking in tongues,” which is his way of expressing speaking in a language that your audience understands.

Al Rubeling’s Big Tip: “I think that the superpower comes from your soul. … You have to be passionate. You have to be confident about your message or your purpose.”
