As a business owner, having to speak in front of large audiences is part of the entrepreneurial game. Though public speaking is empowering, it can also be difficult to manage. I had the priviledge of introducing a couple of speakers at the EO Barcelona University and looked out on a sea of expectant faces.
Alongside founding and building my companies, I have been teaching persuasive communication at IESE Business School in Barcelona for the past six years. I have given 520 sessions to 1,760 students and have coached more than 2n500 speeches. In my experience, how you should stand, hold your hands, look or dress when giving a speech can be confusing. I recommend Sandy Linver’s “Speak and Get Results.” It has helped me learn how to get my message across through powerful body language.
