ROUND 4 OF SCAVENGING BEGINS!
Each month I will scour the interwebz looking for the best articles on public speaking.
I'll be looking for topics like these:
- Overcoming the fear of public speaking
- Presentation tips
- Body language and other technical speaking tips
- And anything in between...
I'm looking for the interesting, the fascinating, the practical, and anything with worthwhile information to help you become a better communicator.
The best of the freaking best!
The purpose is to save you time. A lot of what's out there can get repetitive and end up wasting your time.
Don't worry, though, I'm doing the scavenging so you don't have to. It will ALL be right here for you.
Grab a hot dog and start reading.

About this guy...
Howdy! My name is Matt Kramer and I used to suffer excruciating death when speaking in front of a group, now I LOVE it. Overcoming this fear has changed my life. In less than a year since, I’ve started this website, Tactical Talks, competed and won 3 separate public speaking contests, wrote a book, and spoke at one of the top universities in southern California (SDSU).
And look, I’m not telling you this to “show off.” My purpose is to show you that it’s possible to start doing the things that YOU want to do. And that’s my goal. My focus is to help you overcome the fear of public speaking so you can build the confidence to go after what you want in life.
