Talking Talks: Speaker evolution with Sam Tatam


What can an expert in evolutionary psychology tell us about presenting? Lots!

In this episode of Talking Talks Bri speaks with psychologist and head of Behavioural Science at Ogilvy, Sam Tatam.

We talk about why everything is selling, why gaps are essential in your presentation (leave space in the mousetrap), why you should watch yourself on mute, maximising the pixels in a virtual presentation and similarities and differences between client work and keynotes. Oh, and why Sam wants people to think of him in the shower!

Please excuse the occasional "ping" along the way.
