Net Neutrality - Issue We Can All Have Fun With

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Not net neutrality. But not caring about net neutrality is no reason to pass up this hilarious rant by comic John Oliver on the issue. When net neutrality is mandated, internet service providers (ISPs) can't discriminate against consumers based on what search engines they use.

Rick Perry and the Blank Mind

Public Speaking Advice and Commentary

  What I recommend is having a minimal set of notes as a safety net so that if your mind does go blank, you’ve got something to fall back on.    Knowing that the safety net is there will usually help the brain relax and therefore avoid the problem in the first place.    Unfortunately, the net result will be to laugh the whole Rick Perry campaign off in the long run.

Executive Communication Skills: Tech Habits

Matt Eventoff

Smartphones, net books and tablets have enabled our ability to work faster, cheaper, more efficiently and often more productively. Technology has changed how we work and often where we work, as we are now all mobile, and always on. Through social media we are able to meet people we might never have met and develop working relationships we would have been unable to develop years ago.

Crisis Communication and Timing – Sony and Johnson & Johnson

Matt Eventoff

In a crisis, and in crisis communication, timing, and time, is crucial. Johnson & Johnson ( J&J ) and Sony Corporation (TYO) both faced crises over the past seven days. They were quite different, as one was unfolding, so it is unfair to compare the actual events. The purpose of this post is to illustrate the importance of time in crisis communication. J&J held their annual shareholder meeting last Thursday, and prior to the meeting CEO William Weldon gave a few private interviews.

Our hearts and thoughts are not with you at this time…

More than PowerPoint...

What’s the net effect? Enough with organizations offering generic sentiments and abstractions. Be specific. Give me something concrete, or don’t say anything at all. Let’s say I’m on a company’s email list. It sends me an email telling me to enjoy a happy and safe holiday weekend. It generously tells my family to have one, too. And then 100 other brands send me something similar. And post it on their Facebook wall. And send it out as a tweet.

Warning: Trailer Trash Words and Phrases that Destroy Your Credibility

Executive Speech Coach

Internet The word is “In – ter – net”. It’s not “Inner-net”. The words that you use tell your audience who you are, where you are from and what is your level of education. Based on those blatant messages, your audience decides on what label to slap on your face. If your audience perceives that you are “beneath” them in education they tend to be less willing to see you as an expert. There is nothing wrong with coming from the other side of the tracks.
