  • Create Memorable, “Sticky” Slidedecks For Your Presentations

    By Corrie Miller In our last blog post we talked about why your presentation might fail to meet its objective (connect with your audience, convert the sale). One of the biggies: Bad slidedecks. If your visuals don’t add anything to your talk, you’re wasting your time and your audience is tuning out. Let’s address this and show you some examples of what […]

  • Three Powerful Public Speaking Techniques used by TED speaker Ron Finley

      Did you catch Ron Finley’s presentation at TED 2013? He was a powerhouse who captivated his audience and received a resounding standing O. If you haven’t watched him you should:     Ron beautifully demonstrates what separates presenters who have their audience enthralled from those who don’t. But a little aside…understand that it didn’t come easy nor was it […]

  • How to Build a Presentation: Step #1

    Don’t put pen to paper. Don’t put a Sharpie™ to whiteboard. And absolutely do not open up PowerPoint. To build a presentation that will have your audience savouring your nuggets of wisdom like Tootsie Rolls Pops™ begin with brainstorming. The fun stuff.

  • What Separates the Good Public Speakers from the Great?

    Would you have thought that it is listening?   It is.   The pivotal point when public speakers move from good to great is when they listen to their audience and understand what they (the audience) need to hear.

  • Is Your Presentation Staying on Message?

    At the end of a session with a client I ask, “What did you learn today that had the most impact?” One common response is “Staying on Message”.

You listened intently because the speaker engaged you with their speaking style, ability to tell a story, hooking you in from the first minutes, and leave the audience wanting more. Are you an […]

  • I’ve Been Shifted ~ Have You?

    Two, yes count them, two, ideation creating presentations two days in a row. Why would I run on about attending mind blowing presentations. Aren’t they all like that? No, many run the range from milk toast to just plain crap. Under-practiced, no point, no emotion, etc. We’ve all endured more than our share. What made these two special? They opened […]
