Useful education for speakers
Six Minutes Speaking and Presentation Skills is a website with lots of resources for speakers. It is maintained by Andrew Dlugan, a Canadian speaker, trainer and coach.
Dlugan is not a 'quick fixer', his information is sound and considered and as far as I can tell, in every way in line with current knowledge and science about what makes a good presentation.
He also publishes critiques of video recorded speeches, a very effective way to learn good speaking skills. There is also a form and some good advice on how to do your own critiques.
If you want to better your speaking skills, I recommend that you subscribe to his newsletter and whenever you have some time to educate yourself, go to the website.
