This Moved Me is a podcast and blog about the art of public speaking. As a speaker and presentation coach, there's nothing I love more than to dig into how we can move an audience. Because I believe that a good talk can move the world. If you do too - you're in the right place! If you want to create a talk that will move the world - welcome!
