Director of Business Development
What is your biggest speaking challenge?
I have a really hard time controlling my pace - sometimes I speak way too fast
How comfortable are you speaking in front of others
I love it!
What is your worst public speaking memory?
I led a presentation about 3D printing construction at a Philadelphia pitch event once - while people loved the presentation due to our technology, I spoke at such a fast pace that my words were mixed together, the investors had to ask me to slow down and asked me multiple times what I was saying, and my partner had to take over for the remainder of the presentation after I had become overly flustered.
What is your goal for 2018 to improve your speaking skills?
My goal is to slow down my pace and improve breathing to the point where it's second nature to speak at an even speed.
How frequently do you plan to practice using Presentr?
2x per week
