Michael is New Zealand's premier speaking coach. We find out a lot about speaking in this interview - why we fear it and what can help - and it is gold. You will want to listen in on our conversation as I learned so much. We also hear about his early years (including in an orphanage) and leaving school very young and what led to being the speaker coach for people like Lilia Tawara (over 9 million TEDX listens… and the fifth most viewed TEDx talk on the planet). I really appreciated Michael's vulnerability in sharing his story and also freely giving us so many tips and insights into the art of crafting a good talk!
