The Weekly Might Have Missed List (6/08/08)

LetZcommunicate: “Speaking of Nightmares” — Seven presenting nightmares, seven really useful lessons learned.

Pro Humorist: “Pulblic Speaking: Hecklers” — “This is important because you are the speaker so you are in the position of power.”

Business Presentations: “Get the Hook: When Speakers Hog the Spotlight” — Great tips for gracefully helping the longwinded away from the microphone.

About Projectors: “ASUS Laptop Has Built-In Projector” — “Another reason you might want this projector in your laptop is because you could have forgotten your portable projector at home when you almost missed your business flight.” It always pays to have a backup.
