The Natural Law of Good Public Speaking with Malcolm Gregory – 030
Malcolm Gregory hasn’t always been a confident speaker, and in his early days he was keen to avoid doing presentations because he didn’t feel that he fitted the mould. Eventually, he discovered the secret to unlocking his confidence as a speaker and has used speaking to stand out and win business ever since.
Malcolm has developed a reputation known for his ability to “dispel complexity and reduce challenging scenarios to simple and ordered next steps”. Within the legal profession he is recognised as a leader in his field of employment law, and he can often be found in court arguing cases for his clients. As a Speaker he is sought-after because he is able to make employment law engaging and is in demand as much for his presentations and training, as he is for advising on difficult cases. In this show he is sharing the secret he discovered to make him a successful speaker, alongside some great tips for making mundane content memorable.
