When you think of speakers do you normally think of extroverted people? Does that have you wondering if you can be an introvert and a great speaker?

That’s a question I answer today with Jonathan Fields. Jonathan is a best-selling author, entrepreneur and international speaker who is known for his brand, Good Life Project.

On this episode of The Speaker Lab, we take an introspective look at being speaker. Jonathan shares how he handles being an introvert during his speaking engagements, and how to be comfortable in your own skin while you’re on stage. Join us to hear all about it and more  on the 183rd edition of The Speaker Lab.
