Strap in for episode seventy-seven of The Presentation Boss Podcast. Over the past few months, Thomas has had some conversations with Todd Cherches about all things presentations. Given he has just released a book about visual communication, you can imagine those conversations were quite animated and aligned.

As is often the case with all professional communicators, the same advice and tips are shared. But Todd manages to drop out phrases that sound exactly like Kate and Thomas, but with a different accent. In this episode we discuss how you can become more visual in your presentations (even without slides), why it’s so important to do so plus a raft of book recommendations.
