On today’s installment of the Guest Mentors Summer Series, you’ll hear from Lisa Braithwaite. Lisa is a speaking coach, trainer, and author of “Presenting for Humans: Insights for Speakers on Ditching Perfection and Creating Connection.” She mentors entrepreneurs and professionals to create memorable and engaging presentations so they can build their businesses through speaking. With a B.A. in Theater and an M.A. in Education, she spent 16 years developing programs and training in the nonprofit sector as an advocate and educator, as well as founding her own organization.

Today’s episode will give you permission to be creative and use interaction to bring your presentations to life.
