Episode 5: How To Use Passion To Fuel Your Presentation

Warren Buffett once said:
Without passion, you don’t have energy. Without energy, you have nothing.

I couldn’t agree more, especially when it comes to delivering a presentation. To make people REALLY engage with what you’re saying, you need to project the passion you have for the subject.

In this episode I explain why this is important, and how you can do it!

I also mention Simon Sinek’s TED talk: How Great Leaders Inspire Action


Challenge of the Week:


Watch these videos of three very different designers who all clearly know WHY they do what they do. Very inspiring!

Phillip Johnson, Landscape Architect: On Water Management


Daniel Libeskind, Architect: 17 Words of Architectural Inspiration


Chip Kidd, Graphic Designer: Designing Books Is No Laughing Matter. Ok, It Is.


I’d love to hear who your favourite presenters are. Who do you know who is super passionate and projects their WHY when they present? Just leave a comment below!


  1. What a great podcast! It’s lovely hearing about you talk about using passion in your presentation when YOU are so clearly passionate about the podcast. It’s a perfect example for the episode even when you are doing it indirectly. Can’t wait to listen to more.
