Speaking Internationally

An International Speaker/Trainer was not on my wish list of things to do, but today I am writing this blog from across the world in Malaysia. I am scheduled to conduct a training program on public speaking skills here and in Singapore. So far it has been a fabulous experience. I am so glad I said "yes" to this assignment.

The next time you are asked to give a presentation, say yes no matter where it's going to be or who is going to be in the audience. You will grow from it, learn from it, and who knows what else may come of it.

Three Ways for Your Audience to Retain Information

People only remember 25% of what they heard. But... when you speak in public there are three ways you can help your audience retain information so that they will remember more of your presentation.

1. Present with a KISSS - Keep It Short Simple and Succinct
2. Be engaging - tell stories, examples, analogies, metaphors.
3. Involve your audience - ask them questions, get them to share their stories, pain, and successes.
