Speakers are communicators, says Dr. Straker. In this episode, she shares her advice on how to communicate clearly and emotionally connect with an audience.

Dr. Pamela D. Straker’s Big Tip: “The best way to engage people is to tell stories,” she says. “I believe that being able to connect with others is being able to share a story or develop a story that engages them at a deeper level so that you’re not talking at them, you’re giving them something to which they can connect.”
