Public Speaking Training:
Say it with Flowers
This is a unique way of showing what you learned from your public speaking
training. A friend I know who is a professional speaker made a unique deal with
his local flower shop. That special deal always helped him to make a lasting
impression when he spoke at a speaking engagement. When he had a program coming
up he would go to the florist and buy at discount all the fresh flowers that
hadn't been sold yet.
My friend would arrive and make a big entrance, throwing flowers into the
crowd. Everyone in the audience got a flower to take home and depending on the
size of the crowd, some would get a whole bouquet. He also sent big bunches as
his thank you gift to the meeting organizer. He purposely sent so many that the
organizer could not possibly take them all home. His good nature and his name
was spread all over the company he was speaking for and left a lasting
impression on his audience.
