Ken Robinson has a great way of keeping your interestwhen hes talking by telling you interesting storys thatyou want to hear. I really enjoyed his speech but I feltthat the humor from his storys really distracted mefrom understanding some of his points on his topic.
Jane Mcgonigal made a lot of really good points and really drew me inunderstanding what she had to say. My self being a gamer and spending lotsof hours playing games I understand that I have become a great problemsolver and can work great with other and that these are some skills I havegrown from gaming.
Between the speakers I feel I enjoyed JaneMcGonigal the most and got the most out of it thenI did from the others. Even thougth I feel ken is thebetter pubic speaker I learned more from Jane.
I have learned that when delivering your speech the bestway to hold a audience is to draw them in with humor andthings the viewer can relate to. This is something I noticedin both presentations that I feel really helped.
The best tip I can give is open up to your audience and help themunderstand you one your level in any way you can wether it be throughhumor a story or just attitude.
