Episode #138: Public Speaker Secrets with Michael Hudson

Proven Methods to Increase Your Impact

michael hudsonToday, my guest is someone who’s been on my radar for quite some time. 

His name is Michael Hudson. I’ve never met him face-to-face, however, because of a number of mutual connections, we’re “friends” on Facebook. 

Michael stood out to me in part because I saw him as someone who consistently contributed within my community. He’s was quick with a kind word or a helpful tip. He seemed to “spread good cheer” wherever he went.

So, when he sent me a short note mentioning he had a new book out (I believe it was on LinkedIn), I paid attention. The fact the book has the words Public Speaker Secrets in the title didn’t hurt either.

The full title of Michael’s new book is Public Speaker Secrets: 52 Proven Ways to Increase Your Impact Every Time You Speak! In it, he shares time-tested and proven lessons gleaned from over 30 years as a public speaker. If you’re looking to take your public speaking skills up a notch, click the play button below.
