Stories, anecdotes, and diversions
The Presenter's Blog
JULY 3, 2012
Anecdotes, stories, and diversions bring a presentation to life. The secret is to not leave the anecdote to chance. Like a good story or anecdote, my diversion bought me not just the colors of Istanbul, but it’s sounds, and smells, and textures, and tastes. If we become lost in an anecdote, we are so relieved to rejoin our main thread that we then become lost all over again. When we add something personal to a presentation, it is a gift from ourselves to the audience.
