I’m off to the Edinburgh Fringe!
I’m heading to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival at the end of this month. I’ve only ever been once before, 15 years ago, so I’m excited to enjoy wall-to-wall stand up comedy for three days.
My friend and fellow pro-speaker Jeremy Nicholas is doing a one-man show there this year and I’ll be making a beeline to see him. His show deals purely in public speaking and just how awful it can be!
As an event host himself he sees a lot of speakers, and his show was born out of a frustration in the way we communicate. He says:
“I want to help speakers to inspire and entertain, or at least, as a bare minimum, keep me awake.”
If you’re going to the festival, check out Jeremy’s show and learn a few tips for your own speaking style:
