David Nihill: "Do You Talk Funny?" | Talks at Google

source: Talks at Google    2016年3月23日
David Nihill has walked—and talked—in your shoes. The Irish-born author went from being deathly afraid of standing in front of an audience to hosting a business conference, regularly performing stand-up routines, and winning storytelling competitions in front of packed houses.
He did it by learning from some of the world’s best public speakers: stand-up comics. In what doesn't sound like the best plan ever, David decided to overcome his fears by pretending to be an accomplished comedian called "Irish Dave" for one full year, crashing as many comedy clubs, festivals, and shows as possible. One part of the plan was at least logical: he was already Irish and already called Dave.
David joins us to share the principles of stand-up comedy and how they can be applied to all public speaking.
This talk was moderated by Chet Haase.
