Two crucial ideas in this chapter are the C2ARES Principle and WPPR - either one can completely change the dynamic of your presentation. Most speakers double down with this mistake. They have far too much on their slides and read off their slides far too much. These techniques will completely change the way you interact and use your visuals to work for your rather than against you.

Week 5: You Are Your Audience

This chapter asks you to take an in-depth inventory to discover who you are. One of the reasons people are so afraid of public speaking is they are afraid of being judged. None of us are perfect, it is scary to reveal our imperfections to the world -- it is against our nature. If we can accept our selves, the idea of sharing in front of an audience becomes more tolerable. Guess what? As many faults as you or I may have, so does our audience. By getting clearer on who you are, we can use that knowledge to better understand and respect our audience.
