“We as an audience want to trust our speakers.”
“If you’re worried about being scared, you’re not focused on the audience and delivering the content.”
“It’s very important to rehearse under mild stress and then continuously increase that stress.”
“We all have a bag of tricks.”
“Never apologize from the stage.”
“The first step is to put yourself out there.”
“We forget that ‘no’ is an opportunity for a new door to open.”
“You have to put yourself out there in order to give your idea and your story the possibility to be heard by anyone.”
