The paradox of performance

Jan Dalley writes in the Weekend FT on the paradox that in an age of increasing digitization of our culture (via music downloads, YouTube video and more) people still seek out the unique personal experience of attending live performances: at literary festivals, rock concerts, and lectures.

Standing Ovations: How to Earn Them and Why Some Speakers Don’t Want Them!

Speaker Launcher

I went to his concert in my hometown last week, and it was apparent to everyone there that he deserved that title. Elton John is a music legend. Moreover, when he wrapped up, there was, of course, a 10-minute standing ovation. He likely could have stood on his head and spit nickels, and he would […].

The why of presentations–getting results

PowerPoint Tips

I remember watching a video of a presentation given to some reporters in the context of a concert that Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr gave in New York City a few years ago. It was a benefit concert to raise money to teach at-risk middle school children the Transcendental Meditation technique to reduce the stress they were experiencing. To get the best results from a presentation, you need to think about the “why.” ” Why are you doing the presentation?

Make your audience feel like rock stars

Speak Schmeak

Have you ever gone to a concert or watched one on TV? Specifically a rock or other popular music concert? Have you noticed that, at many or most concerts (I don't have a scientific number, but let's just say many), the band holds the microphone out to the audience at some point for them to sing?

French students are revolting

The Presenter's Blog

They rush off as excited as if heading for a rock concert. Sarkozy supporting students are on the street, leafleting anybody within 20 paces. Every fifteen minutes another bus load leap to the pavement, eager for instructions and a hand-full of leaflets. Such activism plays like a counter-cultural revolt when compared to the political apathy that cedes political influence to lobbyists, SuperPACs, and media moguls. Vibrant societies need public discourse, mobilised from the roots.

Terrorism - How The 21st Century Began, Going On Since

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Parents can never be confident that their children going to school, to a concert, or a job will ever return home. The horror of the 20th century was war. The big kind. Then the 21st century began with terrorism - sophisticated, organized. And death was no longer "over there" in another country. It was right in the streets of Manhattan. Tonight it's in the streets of Paris. Who knows where it will happen tomorrow. And anyone who contends there is a solution is naïve.

Global Terrorism - Brandname Facilities Targets

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

That could be a concert hall or hotel. It was in the brandname Radisson Blu Hotel in Mali that the terrorism took place. Likely the terrorists' agenda includes discouraging human beings from being in a brandname edifice. It could also be an office building such as the iconic MetLife which is part of Grand Central Station in Manhattan. Or it could be Grand Central itself. So  So many human beings pass through that commuting hub daily.

An entire evening’s experience recounted decades later, thanks to one action, one facial expression, or a moment of true, unconscious “aliveness” … When I play a concert, I want to create those memories for myself and for the audience.

"Bohemian Rhapsody" - Brilliant Portrayal of Self-Hate

And his performance is brilliant at the Live Aid concert. Freddie Mercury, who became lead singer in British band Queen, was filled with self-hate. The meme of how not liking yourself is so destructive permeates the smash hit film "Bohemian Rhapsody." " Mercury grows up in England in an immigrant family from Pakistan. The father is rigid, especially in his religious beliefs and notion about how an ordinary life should be lived.

  Sure, during my youth, I was a regular at the free outdoor concerts. Again, the annual J'ouvert Festival has been the setting for violence. As the New York Post reports, an hour after it kicked off, a man was shot in the back. In 2015, there were two fatalities. The year before that, Andrew Cuomo's aide was fatally gunned down.    Some would shrug it off, saying: That's New York City. I don't.

Why do we clap? A short history

Speaker Confessions

I know, first hand, that Bruce Springsteen fans yell “Bruuuuuce&# at his concerts, which to many people new to his concerts, sounds exactly like people booing. If aliens landed at a lecture they’d be very confused about what’s going on at the end. Why is it we strike our hands together violently to indicate we’re appreciative of what someone did? It’s an odd thing, an arbitrary cultural act that could have been just about anything.

For example, you can’t do much about a non-refundable ticket to a concert. Every day we make a myriad of decisions – eat out or buy groceries, walk or hail a cab, go to the movies or stay in. Sometimes, we rationalize that cooking a home meal is a better idea since we already spent too much on dining this month. But then, we see some attractive promo at the deli and go on and change our mind in a beat.

What Does It Mean to Resonate?

They might even quiver with enthusiasm and act in concert to create beautiful results. Language and power are inextricably linked. The spoken word pushes ideas out of someone’s head and into the open so humankind can contend with adopting or rejecting its validity. Moving an idea from its inception to adoption is hard but it’s a battle that can be won simply by wielding a great presentation. Presenting those ideas can either evoke puzzled stares or frenzied enthusiasm.

Like when you go to a concert and the singer shouts, "Hello, Santa Barbara!"

Did Pinkberry really need to remind me that the store is opening in Santa Barbara? Because I'm driving down State St., and I know where I am.

I made it for a benefit concert’s bake sale and people raved about it. I’ve written on this topic before (see the links below), but it’s important enough to cover again.

From what the audience said (a number were beginners), I think this was true for others.

His exact words were, "When people complain, I tell them 'listen faster.'"

Just as a football player or a violinist warms up muscles before engaging them in the game or the concert, so should a speaker warm up the muscles required for speaking before a presentation. One of the actor's most precious tools is his voice. Unless he's in a Marcel Marceau retrospective, without his voice he will miss an entire dimension of communicating with the audience.

How many times have you held yourself back because "That''s the way it''s always been done?"
