Naked & Natural Presenting

Season 2 | Episode 30
15m | Aug 27, 2023

We all know the struggle of enduring a monotonous presentation that leaves us counting down the seconds until it's over. But fear not, because in this episode we will be talking about some of the various ways that we can all become a more captivating and impactful presenter, by learning to deliver more powerful and engaging presentations. Listen in as Dr. Colin Roche talks about naturalness (the natural expression of ourselves) and presenting naked, which means putting your audience first, being transparent, and allowing yourself to be vulnerable and exposed. 

In this episode, Chef Roche also mentions the book "The Naked Presenter: Delivering Powerful Presentations With or Without Slides" by Garr Reynolds (, which is an invaluable resource that will help you discover how to get to the core of your message and deliver presentations that are as natural as they are memorable!
