This on demand audio series is a part of the Executive Girlfriends Group Vignette Series. Chicke Fitzgerald interviews Karen Hough. The original live interview was 3/07/14.
One reason public speaking is such a nightmare for so many people is that they think they have to be “perfect.” They drive themselves crazy trying to conform to all sorts of handed-down rules that tie them up in knots and put their audiences to sleep. Karen Hough says you can throw out those rules, relax, be yourself, make “mistakes,” and connect with your audience much more effectively than the guy with the impeccable PowerPoint slides.
Hough has used her unique presentation approach to take the anxiety out of one of the greatest fears in business. Her book debunks over a dozen myths about presentations to make them more fun and natural for everybody.
Karen Hough (Huff) is the Founder & CEO of ImprovEdge (Improv- Edge), and the author of “The Improvisation Edge: Secrets to Building Trust and Radical Collaboration at Work.”
Karen’s first life was as a professional improviser and actor. She trained with Chicago’s Second City, did over 100 theatrical productions, was featured in radio, TV and film. She lived a second life as a successful executive in IT for network engineering start-ups. She finally became an entrepreneur.
