“Presenting isn’t about making speeches or working through a deck of PowerPoint slides. In fact, whether or not we recognise it, we are all full-time, professional presenters. Every action and every word conveys a message. To know and understand this is the first and biggest step to becoming a good communicator, a strong leader and a valuable team member. All too often people focus on public speaking, forgetting, or maybe never realising, that all the world is a stage.”
