    E29 How to Become a Confident Presenter

    E29 How to Become a Confident Presenter

    “Confidence is coming from a place of feeling comfortable.”

    Andrea Pacini



    In this episode of the Salesforce Posse Podcast, I have a conversation with Andrea Pacini. He is a presentation coach and Head of Ideas on Stage UK. He specialises in working with business owners, leaders and their teams who want to become more confident presenters. 

    Since 2010 Ideas on Stage has worked with thousands of clients around the world, including companies like Microsoft, Lacoste, The World Bank and over 500 TEDx speakers. 

    Andrea is on a mission to stop great ideas from failing just because of the way they are presented. His vision is to help hundreds of thousands of business leaders share their message so they can grow their business, increase their influence and make a positive impact in the world. 


    We start the conversation with Andrea’s childhood, career journey, and why he wanted to become a presentation coach. Communication is how we share thoughts, ideas, and feelings. To establish good communication between people, we have to explain them effectively. It doesn’t matter if you have brilliant ideas or experiences if you can’t communicate them properly. Every audience is different. Some prefer simple language, and some prefer more complex language. It’s based on the knowledge level the audience has on the subject. In this part of our conversation, we discuss the importance of using language that everybody in your audience can understand.

Always a way ,

Salesforce Posse is so helpful!

Excellent podcast!

Dhdooofjebdj ,

Unlistenable

Feigned excitement by the host is unbearable to listen to

vinningspace ,

Zencastr recording was better imo

Usually I hear this podcast when I’m traveling in my car. Previous podcast audio was not consistent. It was low most of the times but would suddenly get loud. It was annoying. The latest episode I heard at my home on my phone speakers. I’m not sure environment change or what but i felt audio was much better.
