It’s your privilege… not theirs
They are investors   of their   time
It’s not   about   you, or    whatever   you’re   selling…   it’s about   them!
So what?
Get past the facts, and get   them to   “relive”   or “feel” something
Stop talking before  they  stop listening
Like   bullets…   use   questions appropriately
Get to   know   your audience.   Connect.   Relate.
It’s a   learning   experience … for You
If you or your   audience   aren’t   enjoying   it…   consider   doing   something   else.
