Riva Greenberg is a well-rounded speaker. In this episode, she shares a variety of tips on how to improve your speaking, from practicing to knowing your topic to using the Power of Silence.
Riva Greenberg’s Big Tip: Knowing your topic, says Greenberg, “takes a lot of fear out of it and lets you relax more up there.” In addition, if you are passionate about your topic, “that comes through to the audience, and I think they’re not judging you on your performance, but they are embraced by your passion.”
