Public Speaking : Wake 'em Up!

Public speaking events are best with fireworks, horses, merry-go-rounds, and Bigfoot. Ok, maybe that’s taking things a little too far…then again maybe not if it gets your audience to pay attention to you from the very beginning of the event to the very end.

The last thing you want is someone to fall asleep in your public speaking presentation! How horrible would that be? Keep from finding out by doing something outrageous from the very beginning! I shoot confetti out into the crowd. This keeps the audience members hanging on my every word and movement, just waiting for something else.

Find something you love, maybe the fireworks thing, and do it at your next public speaking event….just make sure that if you’re setting off fireworks that you’re at an outside venue…otherwise that could be bad!
