55. Gerald Pauschmann on Defusing Difficult Audiences
We’re having a chat for episode fifty-five of The Presentation Boss Podcast. Today we have on the show the very first presentation skills coach that Kate ever had as a mentor. Gerald is a unique individual with a presence both as a presentation coach, a successful YouTube series and his expertise of defusing dangerous and hostile situations. All that gets brought together today in this show that will be super beneficial to anyone giving presentations or facilitating workshops.
Not to mention he’s also not afraid to have a laugh, follow a tangent and generally have a good time. He also manages to make Kate and Thomas slightly uncomfortable and as promised, push buttons. As a result of this deep conversation, we have a little bit longer episode than normal, with all the good stuff left in. Pull up a chair, headphones and listen in to another communication expert.
