Public Speaking Lessons from Daniel Day-Lewis

MILE Community Portal
Last night's Oscar acceptance speeches were the usual mixed bag of good, bad and atrocious, but one presenter really stood out as a role model for all of us in business and government: Daniel Day-Lewis. Not only is DD-L the only actor in history to take home the Best Actor Oscar three times - he also knows how to give a succinct, funny, gracious speech.

I was interviewed for this by Fox Business News today - see the article at:

Well said Bill and great to know that mainstream media is always seeking your opinion as an expert ---- “If you’re ever in a public-speaking situation and something goes wrong – you start coughing or there are projector issues – live in the moment! Audiences are more forgiving than we assume, so it’s better to address it in a natural way,” said Connor.
