- Understand why effective communication occurs only when the other person receives and understands your message.

- Craig shares a story about accidentally making a witty joke while presenting early in his career, which gave him a positive association with public speaking.

- Preparation is key - Craig suggests rehearsing the first 2-5 minutes thoroughly. What did Arnold Schwarzenegger do?!
