Podcast Highlights

Length: 19 minutes, 02 seconds

Mark Chussil claims that his public speaking superpower is preparation — both in content and rehearsal. In this episode, he shares his advice on how to prepare for a successful presentation.

Mark Chussil’s Big Tip: “I rehearse and I really do want to emphasize that,” Chussil says. “There was a time early on when I was doing public speaking, I rehearsed a lot. What I was trying to do was to memorize my speech, and then I decided I didn’t want to do that anymore because I didn’t like the robot stuff. And I thought, well, I know what I’m talking about. But it didn’t get better when I stopped rehearsing. In fact, it got worse. So now I do rehearse, but I’ve taken the pressure off by saying I’m not trying to memorize this speech, I’m just trying to get smooth with what it is that I want the audience to take away.”
