Presenting Naked

Season 2 | Episode 22
39m | Dec 2, 2021

The ability to stand and deliver a powerful presentation that engages the whole minds of our audience is more important today than ever before, partly because of the fantastic reach that out talks can have!

In this episode, Dr. Colin Roche shares information from two books on presenting, titled "I Can See You Naked" by Ron Huff, and "The Naked Presenter" by Garr Reynolds.

Presenting Naked basically means connecting and engaging with an audience in a way that is direct, honest and clear. It means putting your audience first and being transparent, while allowing yourself to be vulnerable and exposed. Presenting Naked embraces, the idea of simplicity, integrity, and passion and is far more satisfying for both the presenter and the audience.
