We are pleased to welcome back Carl Pullein, presentations expert and trainer to many large companies here in Korea. We originally were planning to have a 15 minute interview, but Carl was so good that we talked for almost 30 minutes! So we decided to separate his interview into two parts.
The main reason we were going to do this interview was to get Carl’s opinion on the recent presentations given by Korea during the Winter Olympic bidding process. In particular, we wanted Carl’s opinion on Korean President Myung-Bak Lee and Olympic figure skating champion Yuna Kim’s presentations.
Koreans around the world were, I’m sure, very curious how good President Lee would be giving an English presentation and Koreans were likely equally curious how good their favourite daughter, Yuna Kim, would be. It would be one of the first opportunities to hear Yuna speak at length in English, so people were really excited.
Anyway, Carl Pullein gave us some great insights and presentation tips and we’re sure you will find his interview interesting and educational… Maybe even fun, as Liam and I are in this one together. Enjoy and let us know what you think and if you have any questions.
In case you’ve forgotten, here’s a little background on Carl…
