Public Speaking Training:  

Make 'em Wonder

Most of the students from my public speaking training and my readers know that when I do a presentation I always try to push the limits of he norm, to make sure my audience is going to stay awake and listen to my presentation.

In this article from my public speaking training I will attack another common old school style technique on public speaking. (and I know I will get letters from educational theory folks yelling at me, but that is OK). The technique I am referring to is that you should tell the people in your audience what you are going to cover during your presentation.

I say let 'em figure it out as you go.

If your audience thinks they know where you are going during your presentation, then it makes it easy for them to 'zone out' since they 'think' they know what you are going to say.

Instead make them wonder, 'What in the heck is he going to do next?,' which forces them to stay alert to find out.

If they are asleep it will be impossible for you to use what you learned in your public speaking training so make 'em wake up, and make 'em wonder at your words!
