Podcast Highlights

Length: 17 minutes, 49 seconds

Jerry Pradier says his public speaking superpower is the ability to simplify a topic so that the audience can understand and absorb the information. In this episode, he shares the five principles he uses to communicate complex information to his audiences.

Jerry Pradier’s Big Tip: Pradier is a strong believer in using story, metaphor, and analogy to communicate new information. “Use those symbols that your audience can understand and relate to even if it doesn’t express everything in the concept that you’re trying to present,” he says. “Knowledge has to be lead along by steps and not just thrown at people like a wave.”
