How’s it going? I’m Dave

About Me

I’m an engineer, project manager, and speaker, passionate about all things self development. My website is the online hub for everything about me – personal and professional interests, and more.

I created this website in 2013 to share some of my experiences as I meander through life. Two years later I launched a public speaking blog called Communicate You. The blog has grown to over 50,000 words, or enough material to fill a 200 page book! In 2018 I created a new podcast called Tribe of Speakers.

Picture the scene. Your boss has just asked you to do a presentation about a milestone the company has just achieved. At this stage most people do one of two things. Open up PowerPoint and start dumping information onto slides, or write out a full script and try to memorise it word for word. What follows is a presentation lacking thoughtful structure or content, visual communication or any form of audience engagement.

I wrote my E-Book to help. First published in March 2016, this guide is designed to take you through the entire process for preparing an effective speech from scratch. A short read, it combines my personal experience of presenting, with data-based scientific evidence. It is available for free below.
