On today’s episode of The Speaker Lab, I’m sitting down with my friend Mike Pacchione. Mike works for Duarte, a company that gives presentations about how to create meaningful and moving presentations like the creation of Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth.

On today’s episode Mike shares his journey to his current position with Duarte, how to know whether your talking ideas are good or not and the most effective ways of structuring your presentation.

Listen in to hear all of that and so much more on this episode of The Speaker Lab!
