Let’s kick off this episode of The Presentation Boss Podcast with a Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy reference, because episode 42! We’re playing with a TED Talk this time. And not just Any TED Talk, but the sixth most watched TED Talk of all time. It’s by Julian Treasure and explores why we should use our voice, how we should use our voice and shares a vision for a future of voice.

This talk covers a lot of content and there is so much skill and neatness that can be learned. However, along the way, Thomas and Kate find difference in understandings and point out that they think the talk is simultaneously too short, and too long. What a great example of a speech; let’s jump in and have a listen!
