Ms. DiResta lives by the “gifted speakers are born, but effective speakers are made” adage, and shares her expertise on becoming an effective speaker during the interview.

DiResta believes that adding “speaker” to a business executive’s repertoire gives them a competitive advantage and a much-needed skill in today’s business world. From entry-level to the c-suite, everyone should develop their speaking skills and one way to achieve that is by trying different techniques until we find the one that suits our personality and we’re comfortable with.
DiResta also talks about one of the biggest mistakes speakers make: coming across as nothing more than a talking head and lacking authenticity, which she stresses, is the key element in order to successfully build a relationship with the audience. Being someone you’re not creates an additional level of stress and people won’t be able to connect with the message. The top leaders and top presenters are aligned in their communication-the visual, vocal, and verbal behaviors give off one consistent message.
'Progress, not perfection' is what humanizes you and the audience can relate to that." --Diane DiResta
