MagneticSpeaking's curator insight, January 27, 8:26 AM

This is very informative for anyone who speaks in public. The moral of this Slideshare is to keep quiet about your internal dialogue. When you speak, everything you say should benefit your audience. When you ask the audience to sympathize with you, you take away from their experience. Sharing stories and taking questions is great, apologizing for being unprepared and talking about yourself is not. Great article.
