The great communicators straddle the generations and each one of them does it differently - the question has to be what can we learn from them? What we can develop into our style, our way of delivering?
Learn the techniques they use - the great communicators all learnt how to deliver their speeches, many had all sorts of challenges and self limiting beliefs in their own abilities.
Long lists of information, pie charts and graphs are guaranteed to send your audience to sleep - the key to engaging is to tell stories.
From the days when we were little we always listened to and remembered stories - now take that a step further into anecdotes, experiences or case studies these are all forms of story telling.
Don't patronise your audience, they are intelligent and they want you to be great because they know they won't get this time back.
Respect your audience by preparing for them, structuring the talk, pitch or speech so they know it is relevant for them and they are made to feel special. Long winded rambling rants are never well received, sticking to time is all part of your structure!
There are numerous courses all over the internet showing you how to create the slides for a speech, what should be included and what you should avoid.
Key challenge here is to reverse the effort level you put into your slides with the delivery preparation - if the average person spends 6 hours preparing for a speech - 5.5 hours is on the slides and 30 mins on the delivery - the challenge is to reverse this equation! Literally reverse the time allocation - practice to speech out loud to an audience more than once!!
Not all circumstances are right for using props - however they can be great for anchoring a key message, creating a takeaway message or bringing some humour into the situation.
Making the choice is a challenge, we do not want to belittle the importance of the key message but we do want it to be remembered after the event.
So What! What are you going to do now as a result of completing this programme? We have covered a great many topics that will all help you become a more memorable speaker be that pitching in business, going to a job interview or standing in an auditorium in front of a larger audience.
