His presentation is about:

“If they can’t understand you, speak louder”

– all too often in healthcare there is a communication gap. It may be because as healthcare professionals we typically have 10,000 more words in our vocabulary than the average person. It is more often because we communicate as healthcare professionals when we really should be communicating as real people.
