Many of my accent reduction clients tell me that they want to sound “natural” when they talk in a meeting or give presentations.
I always tell them that the best “natural speakers” always prepare and practice. We just don’t see that part.

Gallo describes Joel Osteen’s 7 key elements for inspirational speaking.
The 7 keys are:
- Introduce a theme
- Use stories
- Use a bit of humor
- Use parallel sentence structure
- Avoid using notes
- Inspire your audience
