Keep your presentation short and tweet

Communication skills get Twitter-ized I’ll be honest. Twitter sounded like a crazy idea to me. Who can say anything about anything in 140 characters? And who cares anyway?

Yes, It’s simply breathing. You’ve read that advice in […]


Effective Public Speaking: Your Brain is Wired for Storytelling
