Key Takeaways: 

"I recommend people rehearse any communication that they're going to do, do it out loud and that rather than planning out every single word and trying to memorize it, get up from behind our desks, out from behind our computer screens and we walk and talk. When we walk into the room or when we get on stage, it's so in our bones, we're not searching for the words, it just flows. Our communication flows right out of us. " - Alexia Vernon

"You're going to find the color, you're going to find your point of view by saying it out loud, over and over again without attachment to your notes. " - Alexia Vernon
