  • People only start to listen after you stop talkingIn order to get your audience to learn what you said, you got to learn to stop talking. Try to stop long enough to try to let them adjust what you just said. Get the picture of it, and try to put it in the context they know, before you move to the next thing. Pause is absolutely the most important thing you can do. The Power of the Pause. You don’t wanna be practiced, memorized it, because it will increase flat delivery, and flat natural delivery is without passion, and passion is what they people comes to hear.
  • To feel nervous about public speaking is the most natural thing in the world. Some studies show that about 75% of the population is affected by it to some degree. Glossophobiais the most common phobia in the world and it regularly ranks way above spiders, rats, snakes, dental surgery and heights in survey after survey. In fact in one where people were asked what they feared most in life it came first, with death coming second - which means that most people literally would rather die than do it. This always reminds me of the Jerry Seinfeld line that at a funeral, most people would rather be in the casket than delivering the eulogy!
  • You and your audience has to be in the same on the same page, on the same wave length, every step of the way. You cannot give them any reason to think of anything other than your message. You’re not Looking up hoping to get divine inspiration; When they ask how many people you speak to…I would say one, because this is what I do. I talk to one person at a time. The more comfortable you feel, the more comfortable the audience will feel, because they are empathizing with you;The three-second rule. Help can be get by introducing yourself before the presentation. Know their industry: their culture, environment, their problems, expectation. TIMELY: bring new news, a gem that you can salte it into your talk at the last minute. Connect the specific to the more general, tie your presentation to their context.

  • Statistics, stories, use of testimonies: audience should feel that assertions advances by discourse are not those of merely speakers alone but of other people, too. And that it’s not only my opinion but there are supporters of what I say. Drawing an implicit conclusion. More effective when conclusions to be drawn from their supporting materials are not stated explicity for listeners. Exercise:Let’s pretend that in front of you is an audience of people with no motivations of their own. They all suffer from apathy, anomie, boredom, what ever malaise you can imagine. And you are to Motivate them.
  • what treasure are there to be mind; stories that carries meaning; start at the family table; “Killer story”, the one that clinches the point you’re trying to make. People are so busy than ever, they don’t have time for long storiesTruthiness deliver inspirational , inspiration comes from real-life experience.In the reader, laughter, Aha or WAW moment.
  • The best thing about presentation, is that the more you present, the more you speak, the better you get.
