My man, Scott, gave me a signed copy of his book, Confessions of a Public Speaker, out of which I have been able to get some great pointers on talking live without having to throw up prior to the speaking engagement:
– Finishing early; stick around for those people who really want to speak to you. Let the uninterested ingrates leave.
– How to teach people anything; get students to actually practice keeping a pitbull with rabies from choking cats in their jaws before you make them certified dog trainers.
– And if it wasn’t clear the first time, finishing early… I’m out; peace!
