Web: Public speaking is a huge fear for many people. Speaking.io teaches you the basics for free, with simple do's and don'ts to ease your mind and craft an engaging speech. Developer and startup adviser Zach Holman designed the site as a crash course in the art of public speaking. There are five basic sections:
- How to plan your task
- Design and build your slides
- Prep or the big day
- Deliver and do your thing
- React and reflect on what just happened
Each section has step-by-step instructions on the best way to work your way to the perfect speech. Holman's candid writing style also makes it easy to understand what he's saying; no jargon here. You can expect to learn everything from the perfect colours to use for slides to how to deal with your own nervousness.
