Start your public speaking career or take it to the next level with The Speaker Lab's Grant Baldwin!

One thing all great speakers do, whatever their topic or their audience, is practice. They practice, practice and practice more. They rehearse their speech from start to finish many times, they never just wing it on stage. What often makes a great speaker so great is their commitment to practice.

And that’s why I’m spending this entire show to talk about practice and rehearsal. I’ll be covering how much to practice, how to properly rehearse and what sort of process to use when as you are practicing for your next speaking engagement.

Listen in for those topics and much more on episode 17 of The Speaker Lab.
