Ooooh oooh oooooooohhh do I love one-liners! This public speaking tool is effective, easy to use, and doesn’t have to be hilarious to get a laugh. Your audience members will appreciate the break in your presentation that affords them a laugh, which will make them more receptive to the rest of your presentation.
