The AFTER-Duction- write your own!

4,064 views

Published on

I’ll bet you’ve been to a presentation and experienced this:

The master of ceremonies takes the microphone immediately after a speaker finishes their talk and says, in an underwhelming manner, “Thanks for coming. Have a safe drive home!”

WOW! That’s a memorable take-away, isn’t it? NOT!

Ending a valuable presentation program like that is unfortunate. Regrettably, this anti-climatic way to draw to a close, a great message from a speaker, is often the norm. It’s done this way because no one, especially the master of ceremonies and others in charge of the event, thought about a better way to end it. I bring you Good News – There is!
