Public Speaking Training:  


Another technique from your public speaking training is to incorporate ads into your presentation. You can make your own fake ads, called mock ups or use funny real ads that are tailored to your particular audience. You can project ads on screen, read them aloud or distribute them in your handouts.
You should always be looking for funny ads that relate to your presentation topic or your audience in magazines and newspapers. You will learn the best ways to create and find these ads during your public speaking training.

Jay Leno  is widely known for his comedic style and has written a series of books called Headlines I, II, and III. They are a collection of really funny headlines from newspapers and magazines all over the country. They even contain blooper advertisements along with funny commentary from Jay. One of my favorites from his collection was of a funeral monument company that advertised a lifetime replacement guarantee. 

You can read ads out loud to your audience without worrying about copyright infringement as long as you always attribute the source. You don't want to claim material as your own if you did not create it. Giving proper credit to the author is an important lesson from your public speaking training.

*Make sure you do not violate copyrights, remember you are a professional public speaker, who knows how to "break the rules" but always obey the law.
