Dov Baron is a consultant for Fortune 500 companies, a professional public speaker, and author of the bestselling Fiercely Loyal: How High Performing Companies Develop and Retain Top Talent and One Red Thread: Discovering the Purpose Already Woven Into Your Life.
In this episode, Dov describes his first speaking experience, which was comical and moving, yet surprisingly successful. He also explains that although it is important to be practised and rehearsed as a speaker, it is dangerous to lean on this too much, as it can make you come off as wooden and unauthentic. He delves into the different philosophies and psychologies that he weaves into his speeches, and discusses why communication is such an essential part of speaking.
Dov also gives an extremely helpful tip on how to turn the inevitable fear that most of us experience before speaking into excitement that is completely backed by science!
