a voice as loud as sepp holzers but as sweet as pie?
I dunno what to say, prowess as an orator is a fiddly bit to claim. But charismatic voice is allot more down to earth than being called a word Smith.

Paul presents with enthusiasm and lots of humor in a way that is hands-on and accessible to everyone. He always makes you think!

Some of the world's most notorious dictators have been great orators. I think that proves that it can be a useful skill. Ultimately, the goal is to get people to listen up, to convert them to your point of view and then to have them do what you say.

That's the goal of a charismatic orator who's suffers from megalomania, that's not the ultimate potential of someone with a gift for potency of mind and speech. To ignite people to think with a mind of their own chased by reason and ethics is the capacity of a true orator not just someone with swindling rhetoric.

With such a photogenic personality, a stand-out in the crowd type of look, Paul spouts forth knowledge, insights, and of course, his opinion, like there is no tomorrow. It is always a "pleasure" to hear Paul speak, just make sure to bring a content filter (earplugs) for younger ones when appropriate. There are only a couple people in the world that can surpass Paul's content, among those are the greats of Permaculture, such as Sepp Holzer, Bill Mollison, etc. Book Paul now for a speaking engagement you will never forget...

Somebody who's name start's with P should use this post as the quote, it's a real graceful testimonial.

And thank this guy, he could really make a man blush.

From Bert Harvey on his Food and the Environment FaceBook page about Paul's 8/12/12 Making the Big Bucks Permaculture Presentation in Woodinville:

Another great upcoming event, come listen to Paul Wheaton speak on making the big bucks with permaculture. If you haven't heard Paul speak, you'll be in for a treat. Easily one of the most entertaining and engaging speakers I've had the good fortune to hear.

I know I've said a bunch in the past but they are old posts by now. If I think of something that's sounds good - not flowing at the moment - i'll post

Just from your videos and podcasts alone :
As boisterous as garlic. As confrontational as a European Yellow Hornet . As sociable and jolly as cherry pie and coffee. Packed full of permaculture knowledge like DNA itself. You are the social butterfly of the permie world. A great big giant overall wearing bearded butterfly sharing permie pollen all over the world.
