Public Speaking Training:
The Centerpiece Area
By following these tips from your public speaking training, you can easily
incorporate the centerpiece area into your presentation. I saw Dr. Shirley
Garrett demonstrate this technique recently at a large public speaking engagement.
She was going to use juggling scarves on stage during her presentation, so
she draped the same kind of scarves in the middle of the tables. It looked great
and gave a polish to her presentation. She provided a centerpiece that was
inexpensive, related to her presentation, and gave each member of the
audience something to take home so they would remember her message. This
idea could also get you some good points with the meeting coordinator who may be
able save quite a bit of money on flowers or other ornamental centerpiece
items. Using skills from your public speaking training involves thinking ahead,
thinking creatively, and thinking how you can help people save money while
you make money.
Your public speaking training will also teach you how to make the centerpiece area a
revenue generator for you. You can pre-sell your items to the meeting planner
and then you stack them nicely in the middle of the table. This gives
everyone at the table something with your name on it to look at and won't
cost much more than a fancy centerpiece.
Use the centerpiece area to tie your message together AND make more money.
