On today’s show, I’m very happy to welcome best selling author and speaker, Carmine Gallo. Carmine is the bestselling author of Talk Like TED, The Storyteller’s Secret, and most recently, Five Stars: The Communication Secrets to Get from Good to Great. He is an influential communication advisor for the world’s most admired brands: Google, Accenture, Intel, Coca-Cola, Allstate, LinkedIn, and companies that touch our lives every day. As a popular keynote speaker, Gallo teaches CEOs and leaders to deliver dynamic presentations and share inspiring stories that sell products, grow brands and inspire change. He writes for Forbes.com and Inc.com. Gallo is also an executive education instructor at Harvard University.

In this week’s episode, Carmine and I talk about how to be a great presenter, and especially, how to present data-rich content. We talk about storytelling and the different people he discusses in his new book.

This will be last episode for what I’m calling the third season of the PolicyViz Podcast. I’ll be taking a few weeks off to travel, rest, recharge, and do some writing. I’ll be back in September with new episodes.
