G’day and welcome to episode 13 of The Presentation Boss Podcast! Your hosts Kate and Thomas are experienced not only as speakers, but as presentation coaches. They love finding the strengths and weaknesses in a presentation and explaining why they work or need to be considered. And here we are with another speech breakdown, brought to you by the nice people of TED.

Today we’re listening to a speech that was recommended to us by a listener. See, we really do listen to suggestions! It’s from an event here in Brisbane and it’s a TEDx talk that’s presented very well, a message that Kate was divided about and reminded us of an infamous radio ad. It’s Tracey Spicer with ‘The Lady Stripped Bare’.
