Practice Makes Perfect, or what Oscar Telecast producers could learn from watching Leonardo DiCaprio

Duarte Blog

That was the pledge made by producers of the 88th annual Academy Awards when they announced that winners could list their “thanks yous” on ticker tape that would run live during the ceremony. Instead of subjecting audiences to endless lists of agents, producers, and supporting “teams,” speeches could be kept short, heartfelt, and meaningful. Producers clearly chose to focus attention on the message behind Lady Gaga’s nominated “Til It Happens to You.” No more boring speeches.

If I were asked what is the one piece of advice I could give to industries that want to make their blogs productive and their business prosper; that would be it. Seek out information your target visitors want to see – not just what’s generating the biggest buzz now (though that’s important); but what appears to be on the verge of being “the next big thing.” Sure, I hear you saying, trends may be relevant for some industries like pop music or women’s clothes; but I machine custom parts for antique tractors…what possible use could trend-spotting have for me? Maybe nothing. But, maybe it might be fun to be ahead of the curve on new technology under development that could increase machine tolerances while decreasing cost. And for those industries that are, perhaps, not as dependent on the prevailing wind as fashion, but still would gain a competitive advantage by staying on top of breaking trends, your time has arrived. Legions of websites have grown up purporting to put you ahead of the curve. But you don’t have to depend on their priorities. You can become your own “Director of Trend Spotting” (which by the way, is a real job title at a major American advertiser). Social media and the Internet put into your hands, or the hand of your contract agents, the tools they need to put you on the leading edge of what’s going on. You can put new products into the marketplace ahead of the competition and build your brand based on innovation and a dynamic understanding of the your market by using them. The first thing to know is that there is a vast ocean of trend information available on the Internet. Blogs, static websites, chat rooms and forums, social networking sites such as Facebook and LinkedIN all feature people, consumers, talking about what they want, what they’ve purchased, how they liked it, and what they’re going to buy next; information that could be crucial to you…and which is there for the taking. What’s more, there are free tools to help you mine this rich vein of consumer trend information. Google, a name everybody knows, has gone out of its way to develop easy to use, and relatively powerful, free products. Google Keyword Tool , Google Trends , Google Alerts and Google Insights for Search all can help you find out what people are thinking and what they’re planning to buy. If you need the ultimate in social media data mining products, you can rent programs that will search amazingly deeply, then categorize and cross reference your data. These programs aren’t cheap but in some applications they are useful. Now is the time to get ahead of your competitors…NOW…while many CEO’s are still stuck in the stone age; still trying to fit that wooden wagon wheel to the sleek Ferrari that is the way people do business today. A recent survey indicates that 25 percent of business will not allow their employees access to social media; fearing it will eat productive work time. By the way, that excuse was also used to resist things like, well, E-mail. The Internet, through blogs, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and the rest are where people gather these days to talk, to plan, and to dream. That’s where you should be if you want to know what they’re going to be buying tomorrow. If you don’t have the time to keep up; then hire somebody who does. photo credit: hardeep.singh From → Creativity , management skills , Media , Networking , Online Communication , Social Media Comments are closed.

BBC Television NEWS: produced for or by morons?

Max Atkinson

I’d very much like to know if I’m alone in noticing that BBC television news programmes are making more and more use of slide shows and graphics in their bulletins. So I’ve put together some edited highlights from the 10 o’clock News on 8th October to illustrate the style of news coverage that seems to be taking up an increasing proportion of the available air time (see below to view), and there follows a step-by-step commentary on some of the news stories as they unfolded that night.

Toastmaster Friday: 9 Ways to Pump Up Your Evaluations

Speak and Deliver

skip to main | skip to sidebar Toastmaster Friday: 9 Ways to Pump Up Your Evaluations Posted by Rich Hopkins, Speaker, Author, Coach on Friday, November 13, 2009 Labels: Criticism , Ego , Encouragement , Evaluation , Toastmasters , Whitewash Evaluation is the core of the amazing fruit that the Toastmasters tree can produce. When the fruit is soft, you will often find a history of rotten evaluations at the core. Perhaps thats harsh, but I believe its accurate. I went my first year in Toastmasters winning Best Speaker, Evaluation, and Table Topic ribbons left and right before anybody finally had the guts to say "Rich, youre a great speaker, but are you ever going to SAY anything?" Thank goodness for Billie Jones, my first real speaking mentor, for getting into my face. She convinced me I could go to the World Championship, all the way back in 2001. I was a slow learner, but eventually made it to the Big Stage. Since Toastmasters is made up of people from all walks of life, all at different stages of their speaking and self-confidence, it can be tough to get, or give, a strong evaluation. Toastmasters teaches a Whats good, what could be improved, whats good again approach, or a Follow the manual objectives one by one approach. Both offer benefits, but unless the club follows up on evaluation technique, members can fall into several rotten ruts, including: A. The Whitewash - the evaluator either cant think of anything critical to explore, or doesnt feel good enough about their own skills to say anything, so the Oreo comes without the creme filling (as my mentor used to say: The criticism is the creamy center - the good stuff). B. The Recap - mentioning everything the speaker mentioned, seemingly to remind us what that speaker said, in case we werent listening. C. The Checklist - "The manual said you should do this, and you did/did not, then the manual said do this, then." D. The Review - agreeing or disagreeing with what the speaker had to say - which is not the same as evaluating HOW they said it! E. The HiJack - the evaluator tells their own story that relates to what the speaker talked about, essentially giving their OWN speech, instead of evaluating the speakers speech. F. The E-Bomb - this is the dark side, when the evaluator gets up and aggressively reams the speaker. The evaluator, thinking they are offering oodles of constructive criticism, forgets that the evaluation is not about showing off how many things they can find wrong with a speech, but a mixture of praise and suggestion. This self-centered approach is the worm in the apple. As bad as A through E are, the E-Bomb is the mother of all that can be wrong with evaluations, and evaluators. Evaluations arent the easiest part of Toastmasters to give, or to listen to, but they are designed to build muscles for all involved parties. To pump up your evaluations, remember the following: 1. Its not about you, its about them. Try asking them before the meeting what THEY would like to be evaluated on. Get a feel for their experience level and emotional strength. What dosage level should you set your evaluation at? Put yourself in a state of mind that is centered on them, not you. 2. You have permission to be constructively critical. No matter your experience level, you have an opinion. Unless this is the first time youve heard someone utter something aloud, you are an experienced listener. It doesnt matter if anyone agrees with you - you have a right to your opinion. This is your time to share it, as long as its aimed to benefit the speaker. 3. Remember to tell them WHY. Dont just tell them to work on Vocal Variety - tell them WHY it will help. Will it build excitement? Suspense? Tension? Emotion? Same with all aspects your evaluation. WHY it worked and WHY, for you, it didnt. 4. Take responsibility for your evaluation - these are your ideas, and nobody in the room may agree with you. Use precursor phrases such as "I saw", "I think", "I wonder", "I felt", and "I believe", vs. "You should", "You need to" or "We could all see". 5. Show what you mean. If you want them to use gestures, use the gesture in the evaluation. Model vocal variety by repeating what they said using your idea of vocal variety. Dont command them to accept your ideas, but say "What would happen if you" or "Id love to see you try", etc. 6. Reinforce the positive. "I loved it when you did" and "The way you (say what they did) really worked for me". Even the poorest speeches have positive spots to reinforce. Whether its word usage, grammar, use of logic, or the courage to get up and speak at all. 7. Offer strong written notes. Dont just leave them with 2 1/2 minutes of verbal evaluation. Write your thoughts down in their manual or on a sheet of paper. You can offer more than what you said, and give in-depth explanations, if need be. 8. Address improvement. If you asked them what they wanted to be evaluated on back in #1, be sure to talk about it. If youve seen them speak before, and notice growth, mention it. Recognition of growth leads to more growth. 9. Summarize and Encourage. The red light goes on, its time to wrap up. Mention your main points again: aspects of improvement first, positive observations second. Then offer encouragement: "You have improved.", "Youll have a chance in your next speech to.", or, if you have to, just go with the old stand-by "I cant wait to hear your next speech!" As an evaluator, you are serving a crucial role in both the meeting, and the growth of the Toastmaster you are evaluating. It can be a balancing act between self-esteem and ego for you, and for them. Above all else, endeavor to Do No Harm as you evaluate - you dont want to hurt the speaker, or cause collateral damage by either scaring off guests with an overly harsh evaluation, or making them doubt the value of Toastmasters with a cream-puff whitewash. Solid evaluations create solid cores, and sweeter fruit, and stronger speakers. Be mindful of your yield and remember, for 2-3 minutes, your mission is to help your fellow Toastmaster to Speak.and Deliver! 1 comments: Richard I. Garber said. Rich: An excellent post. However, although you used a food-related image you somehow omitted the Criticism Sandwich, for which Tom Fishburne has a great cartoon here: [link] Usually in Toastmasters we only have time for the center column of his cartoon though.
