Presenting is not something that everyone understands and can do, without some guidance. I started speaking when I was in Jr High, and been a public presenter for over 25 years. Let me guide you through content creation, public speaking, and even Q&A tips. Every good speaker has a coach and every good speaker practices. Let 18X Microsoft MVP Derek Melber be that for you!

You will learn:

  • What makes a good topic and content!
  • What are the top 5 things every speaker does and shouldn't do
  • How to field questions, without looking stupid
