I’ve always been fascinated by speaker who can inspire audiences to think, laugh, cry, or all three. I’ve always admired the work of well executed improv performances. I’ve always appreciated the quick wit sometimes demonstrated during question and answer sessions. I’ve often been disappointed when I knew someone in a crowd had a biting question that was never asked. (I’ve also always wanted to have a justifiable reason to practice cardistry.)
My hope is to deliver and practice everything from the first paragraph while opening space to the questions people are afraid to ask in a crowd of strangers and coworkers.
