Kate and Thomas have known Chris for some time and followed his content which is always valuable. He even appeared in their live storytelling show! And of course he is bringing a load of value to another conversation. His direct answers don't stray too far from entertaining and gripping too.

81. What Do I Do With My Hands?

Put your hands together for episode eighty-one of The Presentation Boss Podcast! In this episode we give you the answer to one of our most asked questions; "What do I do with my hands when speaking?" We get it, as you speak and nervousness kicks in, nothing feels comfortable and natural and you become hyper-aware that every movement seems strange and unnatural. What Kate and Thomas discuss in these few minutes is what you should be doing when you don't know what to do with your hands. As you become a more comfortable speaker, either over time or throughout the presentation, you'll become comfortable. But here we share where to start, exactly where to put your hands so you don't have to worry about looking like an awkward octopus! We discuss what to do with your hands when you: • Have empty hands, and are just speaking au naturale, • Need to hold something like a whiteboard marker or PowerPoint clicker, • Are handed a microphone and have to hold it the entire time, and • End up needing to speak from behind a lecturn. We also laugh at how Kate finds it impossible to use her left hand with a microphone!

79. Speech Breakdown: The Secrets of Food Marketing

Time to sit down and listen in to episode seventy-nine of The Presentation Boss Podcast. In this breakdown, we tackle something a little bit different. This talk was suggested to us by a listener and we've hesitated to have this detailed look at it for months. It is an acted marketing piece for a UK organisation which made Thomas feel inauthentic about it, but as Kate rightly mentions, the scripting and performance is still full of great lessons. It should be said, Kate and Thomas do get into some detailed discussion around the legitimacy of this talk, but do also address the merits of it's information delivery, persuasive content and still some techniques they'd otherwise avoid. Remember to write to us and let us know what you think of this talk! But do have a listen and learn a little more from this persuasive talk and our thoughts on it!

77. Todd Cherches on Visual Leadership and Communication

Strap in for episode seventy-seven of The Presentation Boss Podcast. Over the past few months, Thomas has had some conversations with Todd Cherches about all things presentations. Given he has just released a book about visual communication, you can imagine those conversations were quite animated and aligned. As is often the case with all professional communicators, the same advice and tips are shared. But Todd manages to drop out phrases that sound exactly like Kate and Thomas, but with a different accent. In this episode we discuss how you can become more visual in your presentations (even without slides), why it's so important to do so plus a raft of book recommendations.

76. Speech Breakdown: TED Talk by Anthony Metivier "Two Easily Remembered Questions That Silence Negative Thoughts"

This should be memorable; episode seventy-six of The Presentation Boss Podcast. In January Thomas had the pleasure of coaching Anthony Metivier here in Brisbane for a TEDx Talk to be delivered in Melbourne. It was a fun process (that might be outlined in a future discussion episode) that resulted in the talk that Kate and Thomas are going to break down on the show here. Before we do, Thomas recorded a conversation with Anthony about the process of getting ready for, and finally delivering an actual TEDx Talk. Maybe it's on your bucket list too? He is known colloquially as 'the memory guy' and in this talk, walks us through the process he used to save his mental health and keep it in control to this day. It's a bit less hard-data-and-science- than our usual, but the skills, competence and techniques are still on display. So, listen in for this interview and breakdown!

75. Storytelling with Data and PowerPoint

It's numbers and narrative on episode seventy-five of The Presentation Boss Podcast. Numbers don't make sense outside of the context of the story they tell. And while we may have access to the best, newest and fanciest graphing software on the planet, the best graphs still need to be presented properly. Even the best graphs unfortunately don't speak for themselves. And Data Storytelling is a bit of a confusing term, we know. However, Kate is a data analyst (and has worked as one for many, many years) so understand exactly how we can use a three-stage structure to bring our data to life; to encourage emotional investment, to control what our audience is looking at, and what they understand. Add in Thomas' expert advice about how to leverage some PowerPoint hacks to make that happen and today you're listening to the ultimate guide on bringing your data presentation to life! No more presenting your data without recommendation or without conveying the context that you deeply understand....

Take a swig of maple syrup for episode seventy-four of The Presentation Boss Podcast. Today we have the world-famous Canadian speaker, Scott Stratten. He's famous for his man-bun, talks on marketing and 'the millennial rant'. Anyone who listens to enough content in the world of presentations ought not to be a stranger to this guy's work. Kate and Thomas always carefully plan out questions for each guest, and the same happened here. But when we jumped on the call, Scott began outlining how he has recently shifted some of his thinking about his own style and techniques and the conversation flowed away from the prepared questions. Turns out when you mix a Canadian and two Australians, good things can happen and conversation flows super easily. And this recording not only went longer than usual and had plenty of laughs mixed in with the gold, but it was deep, raw and vulnerable. And dang can Scott tell a brilliant story!
