Do you know my Frenemy?

Good day my presentation progeny… I’m sure you enjoyed hearing from the grand pooba of presentation, Roberto, but now I’m taking back the reigns with some rock’m and sock’m public speaking insights to fill those chiropractor coffers… (look at that alliteration) On my journey to recovering from losing part of my thumb (aka “the accident”),…
