This episode of the Public Speaking Super Powers Podcast features Carma’s interview with Julie Friend, a strategic business advisor with Gemstone Partners.
Length: 11 minutes, 34 seconds
Julie Friend believes in putting in rehearsal and preparation time for her presentations. Given that her topic is data privacy security and minimizing risk for identity theft, that’s probably wise. In this episode, she shares her thoughts on practicing, eye contact and humor.
Julie Friend’s Big Tip: A “lot of people speak with way too many big words or they’re talking a very technical topic, and the room is maybe not technical,” says Julie Friend. So know your audience and give them a presentation that they’ll understand, “no matter where they are within that topic.”
