So, what to do? You can Google “public speaking” and find a million articles that mention everything from being authentic to not trying to sell something. These are great articles and you can go through them at your leisure. We, however, are going to take a slightly different path to this topic.

We’ll be at the IEEE trade show next week (come see us at booth #5030 if you’re going to be there too!), so this seemed like a good time to post a 3-part “How to” for networking.
