Knowing how to truly present to a variety of audiences is a skill – whilst some people are born natural presenters, we can all learn and improve and take our presentations to the next level.
Whilst considering how to present better with client pitches and indeed online meetings, I came across the work of Andrea and Ideas on Stage and just had to bring him to the podcast.

Want to understand that further? Hit play and hear from the man himself.
