Getting Started

Welcome to Communicate You! If you have a desire to develop your ability as a public speaker, but don’t know where to start, this is the blog is for you. I launched the blog in 2015 with a simple mission: 

to provide the tools and techniques needed to become an effective public speaker

The goal from day one was to capture the key elements of public speaking as I experienced them in my own life. Communicate You has evolved into an extensive collection of articles and interviews.

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.
