Michael Port is the author of the best-selling Book Yourself Solid and Steal the Show. Michael is also an incredibly powerful speaker, using his background as an actor to reach out and connect with audiences of all kinds. His new workshop, Heroic Public Speaking, will teach you how to make your own audience sit up and pay attention.

Tara Gentile talked with Michael about how the best performances come from a place of humility and authenticity, the different frameworks you can use in both written and verbal presentations, and how our ideas are only as good as the audience’s ability to consume them.
