Note: Mitch Muenster (@MobileRez) was scheduled to be on today's show (and came up with the idea for the episode), but technical difficulties on our side prevented us from adding him to the show in time. We apologize for that, and will have Mitch again on a future show.

      Thanks for this. I have just begun to do presentations to local meetups and there was some very useful information that I can learn from.

      As an introvert, I've usually found stage presentation alright. The flow is mainly one way (presenter to audience). That's unlike round table meetings, where constantly shifting attention amongst all the participants, without any established norm for taking turns.. is almost instantaneous (think gigantic waterfall for introverts) energy drain.

      My tip: For social events, where hanging out for selfies with others is the norm now, whereas more extroverted presenters charge up with selfies, then come to present on stage (think closing bottom line), I try spending energy first on presentation (think keynote).

      I largely agree that filler words "um", "like", "so" etc. should be eliminated in favor of something less meandering, like a pause.  I want to point out though that many people, especially engineers, that I interact with - when I DO pause, they take this as a cue that it's OK for them to being speaking and interrupt my thought.  So, I believe the (bad) habit is also gently reinforced by that phenomena.

      @gorestreetguerty: I'm not really sure if anyone understands what you are asking. If you are referring to public speaking, take a deep breath, think about what you are going to say, and don't panic.

      Good stuff. Kasey, as a Tennessean I think you're the only one at Microsoft that speaks good English. ;)
