Let’s Begin…

Storytelling is an ancient art; as humans developed language and culture, we learned to share our stories, thoughts, and dreams. And that storytelling evolved into public speaking, and our audience— thanks to the internet— is the whole world, not just a campfire. So how can we make our voices heard in such a busy space? Chris Anderson digs into why presentation literacy is the skill of the future.

1) Choose a topic or a subject you want to talk about. 2) Sum up some key points you could talk about in a presentation.

Public speaking is one of the key skills of the 21st century. I teach public speaking in Russia. And I'm happy that I can help people share ideas and make this world a little better.
