I believe one of the most effective ways to keep an audience engaged is the use of colorful anecdotes and humorous stories. We see this technique employed regularly in television ads. The product, or important piece of information, is carefully wrapped like a gold nugget inside a silly situation and delivered by a memorable comic spokesperson.
This delivery of the material, teamed with interaction and audience participation, creates a lasting memory for those in attendance.
Each of my topics can be adjusted to fit the time slot of your event and customized for the audience or occasion. (See the contact page for my YouTube channel)
I’d love to speak at your event! Please contact me about your specific audience’s needs!
