In this episode, Tim chats to Charles about the importance of clarity and limiting communication ambition to a few key points. This helps people remember, learn, and communicate well. Tim and Charles also chat about the importance of meeting an audience where they’re at. How? By appealing to their heads, hearts, and hands.

- The best way to learn new information is through the process of reflection, generalisation, and application
