I am one of the co-founders of Presentation Guru, a digital magazine for public speaking professionals. This post is part of a series designed to share the great content on Presentation Guru with the Manner of Speaking community.
To get a small sense of the adrenalin rush that comes with such an epic achievement, check out the trailer for the documentary about Honnold’s exploit.
Most of us, if not all of us, will never attempt something like this. And yet, there is much that we can learn from it.
In April 2018, Honnold spoke at the TED Conference in Vancouver to share his insights about the climb. As I listened to him, it occurred to me that there are valuable lessons for speakers from his free solo of El Capitan. To see Honnold’s TED Talk and to learn what those lessons are, please visit Presentation Guru and read my post using this link.
