Public Speaking: Callbacks

Great Public Speaking

If you refer to a word or phrase you mentioned earlier in your presentation , that''s a callback. If the previous material was poor, the callback will show your willingness to tease yourself, which is an admirable quality the audience appreciates. Later in your presentation someone might notice a misspelling in one of your handouts or visuals. It works well if the previous piece of material got a good laugh or if it was a groaner.

Public Speaking: Callbacks

Great Public Speaking

If you refer to a word or phrase you mentioned earlier in your presentation, that's a callback. Later in your presentation someone might notice a misspelling in one of your handouts or visuals. Another thing that might happen, that is just as good, is that one or more of the audience members might make the connection and do the callback for you. It works well if the previous piece of material got a good laugh or if it was a groaner.
