Michael Port Method & Heroic Public Speaking

1) Use the three act structure to build your story-line – exposition, conflict, and resolution
2) keep your palms open when you speak-it makes you appear more approachable and not as wif you are lecturing.
3) Be aware of things to avoid when speaking-don’t repeatedly touch yourself, your hair, your ear, your nose, etc.
