Lisa Braithwaite: Presenting for Humans




Listen to the Big Blend Radio interview with public speaking coach Lisa Braithwaite who discusses her book, “Presenting for Humans: Insights for Speakers on Ditching Perfection and Creating Connection”.

As speakers, whether advanced or inexperienced, whether speaking in ballrooms or in board meetings, we all face the same challenges. How do we create compelling, relevant, and useful content for our audiences in a way that they are able to take our messages and use them to transform their work or lives? How do we engage our audiences and make a human connection, so that they can envision for themselves the possibilities we present and take steps to achieve them? And what kind of growth and personal development do we have to embrace to get ourselves into the right mindset with the right attitude to support and encourage our audience’s growth?

It’s not as hard as you think to make these shifts and transformations, both for your own benefit and for that of your audience. In fact, it’s as easy as having lunch at your neighborhood deli. If you’ve ever had a stimulating conversation with a fellow customer in line at the grocery store, you know what I’m talking about. Looking at our everyday experiences and encounters with fresh eyes gives us new perspectives on all aspects of our lives, including speaking.

Lisa Braithwaite’s brain is wired to take everyday encounters and experiences and turn them into insights on public speaking. In “Presenting for Humans”, wine tastings, tattoo artists, the Oscars, drag queens, Broadway, sleepwalking, cheese plates, and the Olympics, all become examples or analogies designed to teach a public speaking lesson. Through short, engaging essays and reflection questions, Lisa challenges your preconceived notions about speaking and encourages you to create meaningful and memorable experiences from every presentation.

For anyone looking to make a major impact on audiences and offer them a transformative growth experience, “Presenting for Humans: Insights for Speakers on Ditching Perfection and Creating Connection” is the resource to get you there. Learn more at
