If you’re involved in public speaking – as someone who delivers speeches and presentations, or as an executive communications practitioner, or as an event organizer – then this is for you.

Over the next several weeks, I’m going to share conversations I’m having with some of the smartest people I know about public speaking and social media: how connected audiences are transforming the world of presentations, and how some forward-thinking speakers are making the most of it.

I’m calling it the Social Speech Podcast. You can find the feed here and soon on iTunes. Here’s the introductory episode; the first interview will go live next week.

But please – don’t let my schedule hold you up. Give this intro a listen, and if you have thoughts about the Social Speech (I’ve posted some of mine here) then please share them in the comments. Or email your text or audio comment (up to 25 MB) to rob@socialsignal.com.

Thanks – and I’ll look forward to hearing from you!
