What’s On My Reading List
Talk Like TED: The 9 Public-Speaking Secrets of the World’s Top Minds by Carmine Gallo
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I loved listening to this book on audible. What I enjoyed most was being exposed to many great TED talks that I haven’t seen yet. I can’t wait to carve out a viewing session to check them all out. Who has the popcorn?
The best advice in the book? Favor pictures over text, secret number 9, is my pick. So many times I have been overwhelmed by the amount of text on a PowerPoint presentation. You totally tune out the presenter to try and feverishly read all of the text before they flip to the next slide. Jeffrey Gitomer said it best at a seminar I attended of his; “SLIDES ARE FREE” use as many as you like.
