I think two major keys, which was the use of language and to get on an even ground with the audience, from the four Chris Anderson presented are the most important. Language is important because you never really know the level of understanding your audience has. So you always have to understand your audience first. The second point which was getting on an even ground with the audience is also important because how can you start implanting your idea in someone else’s mind if you don’t understand the audience. To achieve this it is always important to use metaphors to give the audience a better understanding of your idea.

The thought of me speaking and presenting in front of other people makes me feel powerful and somewhat confident. One recent experience that I have speaking in front of people was my senior presentation I felt powerful and I felt like I was the elephant in the room I had all eyes on me and I set the vibe in the room.
