“Public speaking was something that I just kind of stumbled into,” said Sherry Richardson. “But once I got a hold of it and it got a hold of me it’s something that I enjoy very much.” In this episode, she shares some tips on how to incorporate humor into your presentations.
Sherry Richardson’s Big Tip: Always test out your humor on real people before using it in a presenation. “I always practice ahead of time. I see what works, what doesn’t work. I practice in front of employees. I practice at my Toastmasters meeting. I practice in front of my husband. So that I get a reaction.”
