Hey there, my name is Daniel Midson-Short, and just like you, I am an emerging public speaker.

I created this blog to share some of the best tips, ideas, and strategies I’ve uncovered thus far on my journey to become a professional speaker.

Inspirational speaking is my passion in life. Having the privilege of an audience’s attention, and the chance to impact their lives is what I live for.

As a speaker, I give presentations and talks to groups ranging from 20 people all the way up to larger groups of 1,000. I have spoken all across the world from USA, UK, Europe and Australia.

I have twice competed in the World Championships of Public Speaking for Toastmasters International, reaching the Top 30 Speakers worldwide in 2014 and 2015.

Last year, I was privileged to deliver my first TEDx talk, titled ‘Pay Attention’.

Public speaking is an art and a science. You can learn a lot of great techniques from others, and then you have to craft your own style.

I hope that some of these ideas are useful for you and that they help you deliver with more confidence, clarity, and enjoyment.
