Shift from Value to Experience
How can you take your public speaking to a whole new level in 2022?
Whether we're delivering keynotes, boardroom presentations, MC'ing an event, or speaking on a panel - my invitation to you this year is to create a shift from focusing on delivering 𝗩𝗔𝗟𝗨𝗘 to delivering an 𝗘𝗫𝗣𝗘𝗥𝗜𝗘𝗡𝗖𝗘!
If you've done your prep, you'll deliver value.
But how you craft an experience for your audience will determine how memorable you're going to be, how much you'll move your audience, persuade them, inspire them, entertain them - and all of the above!
𝗛𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝟯 𝗲𝘅𝗮𝗺𝗽𝗹𝗲𝘀:
1. Move from it being a monologue to a dialogue and invite audience participation by asking questions and engaging with them
2. Invite someone to come up on stage with you as you illustrate a point - 𝗮𝗹𝘄𝗮𝘆𝘀 𝗺𝗮𝗸𝗲 𝘀𝘂𝗿𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝘃𝗼𝗹𝘂𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗲𝗿 𝗹𝗲𝗮𝘃𝗲𝘀 𝗳𝗲𝗲𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗲𝗺𝗽𝗼𝘄𝗲𝗿𝗲𝗱, never the butt of a joke.
3. Move from relying on slides, to bringing in props that can tangibly illustrate one of your points.
What are some additional ways you can create an experience for your audience?
