Steve Jobs Commencement Address

The Communication Blog

I think this is a wonderful speech and I tried to reprint it in the last edition of my public speaking book but, unfortunately, permission was denied. With the recent death of Steve Jobs--one of the real geniuses of our time--I thought that public speaking students (and actually just about anyone) would enjoy reading a commencement speech he delivered some years ago.

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

District Judge Jed Rakoff, reports Reuters (reprinted in Fortune): " denied a motion by Uber to compel arbitration in a passenger lawsuit over so-called surge pricing. This ruling represents a significant victory for consumers who get entangled in corporations' arbitration clauses. Usually those are buried in pages and pages of contract terms and conditions.

" Steve Cohen. has agreed to pay $135 million to resolve a lawsuit by shareholders of Elan Corp. who claimed they lost money because it engaged in insider trading in the drugmaker's stock."

"PepsiCo's sales topped Wall Street forecasts in the fourth quarter, as higher demand at its snack business that makes Doritos and Cheetos made up for a decline in sales of sugary drinks."  Bags of Doritos - especially squished-up empty ones - have become the new symbol of cool for consumer products company PepsiCo.

Brand VW Takes Another Nasty Hit

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Here are more details from Bloomberg (reprinted in Fortune). There are probably only two universals in outrage: Human beings will not tolerate the abuse of children or animals. Larry Nassar learned about the former. Now, VW learns about the latter. It has been outed that VW commissioned a research study about diesel emissions from a VW Beetle. Those made to inhale the fumes were 10 monkey. Sure, VW has offered a mea culpa for this abuse of animals.

Jared Fogle Blew His Biggest Role - Sentenced To Almost 16 Years

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Here is the coverage reprinted in USA Today. After he had been arrested and charged with heinous crimes against children, Jared Fogle's new role was to convince the powers that be that he was both deeply remorseful and a changed man. It seems he blew that. For example, at his almost five-hour sentencing, he contended that the stress of being a role model turned him toward alcohol, pornography, and prostitution.

David Sweat, Richard Matt - Are These The Kind Of Shrewd Players from "Breaking Bad"

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

"Two convicted murderers [David Sweat, Richard Matt] who used power tools to cut their way out of prison near the Canadian border could be nearby or 'in Mexico by now,' New York Gov.

Here is the article. It's obvious that Tiger Woods should end his hands-on career in golf. And find something else to do for earning a living, satisfying his ego needs and showing the world he isn't completely over.

Cartooning revisited?

Max Atkinson

Looking back on my early attempts at cartooning, I can see that they were all too poorly drawn to be reprinted here. When I was an undergraduate at Reading University, I had a little success drawing cartoons for Rattler , the annual Rag magazine. But I had no wish to starve in an attic like trainee artists were supposed to do. So I thought the answer would be to try to become an academic, as they had a decent salary and rather longer ''holidays'' than most people.

Repurposing - That Isn't Working Out So Hot

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Some of the ways were to provide links and reprint the original content on all social media. The smart crowd in digital hammered that we ordinary players should be repurposing everything. If The New York Times mentioned us or we published an opinion-editorials on Abovethelaw.com, then we should leverage the heck out of those. That "all" keeps growing as new platforms are created. They now include LinkedIn Pulse and Medium.

Soul in the Uber Machine

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Head of legal at distressed Uber, Tony West described his first eight weeks to Corporate Counsel (later reprinted in Law.com ). Since he came from giant consumer corporation Pepsico, he is skillful in how to position and package his comments. The interview is without surprises. Essentially, West sees himself as the chief turnaround officer for how Uber operates, the values in its culture, and its approach to the myriad pending worldwide regulatory and litigation issues.

Chris Christie & RNC Keynote: The mystique of Steve Jobs' product announcement

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

  It had been reprinted in myriad business publications. What New Jersey Governor Chris Christie shares with the late Steve Jobs is the intuitive grasp of the power of mystery.    Every tech person worth his or her salt wanted an invitation to Apple's product announcements.    Before that Jobs kept product details secret.    Employees only knew bits and pieces of what they were working on.

Joan Kennedy: She Drank and She Lost - So, what else is new about alcoholism

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

BOSTON Magazine is reprinting its May 2008 about Joan Kennedy's relapse into alcoholism.    And let's also hope BOSTON Magazine didn't get too many clicks on its reprint of "The Fall of Joan."    Obviously, that publication is desperate.    Otherwise, why would it rehash a problem she seems to have dealt with and such a cliche of a problem it is.

Let Us Not Praise Famous Men - Brian Williams Is A News-Reader

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

" In New York Magazine , Jessica Roy reprints the memo to staff from NBC President Deborah Turness. Are we the ones setting up fairly ordinary human beings like Brian Williams for tragic falls? The peculiar American trait is to create celebrities out of very little. The first of them probably was President Teddy Roosevelt's zany daughter Alice. Because she liked blue the Alice Blue gown became the rage.

A Most Puzzling Development in the U.S. Legal Sector

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

The American Lawyer (reprinted from Corporate Counsel) presents interviews with clients about this development. At Milbank and the law firms which matched the $190k entry-level bump there are probably high-fives among associates. But, how long will the euphoria last? Clients perceive that move as a blatant increase in the cost of doing business - that will be passed onto them.

Romance at Work - Sure, Love Contracts Exist, But Human Heart Is Fragile Entity

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

As Erin Mulvaney reports in Corporate Counsel (reprinted in Law.com), more employers are adopting what's called the "love contract."  Romances in the office always had taken place. But, with increased time spent in the workplace, they are even more likely to develop.    And, in this era of heightened consciousness about sexual harassment, those relationships have become of significant legal concern for employers.

Ghostwriting Books: Pitch package to prospect

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

 Enough sales and buzz could bring establishment book publishers to reprint it in the traditional way.  The sweet spot in pitching to a prospect for a book to be ghostwritten is to frame that as a total package.  In this fast-changing world of how books are published, distributed, and promoted, clients are confused.

Is Media Attack on Gretchen Carlson's Lawyer, Nancy Erika Smith, a "Professionl PR Hit?"

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Today an article by Matthew Boyle in Breitbart , reprinted on Drudge Report, discusses Gretchen Carlson's lawyer, Nancy Erika Smith. The focus is her $45,000 donations to Democratic candidates. Those are characterized as "far left." " Of course, the person Carlson is suing, Roger Ailes, is far right. For folks in public relations, this kind of angle taken on the lawsuit might seem to be "professional hit."

Presentation Technology Checklist

Dave Paradi's PowerPoint Blog

Recently I had a request to reprint a checklist I produced in 2002 that clearly people still have and use. It is called the Presentation Technology Checklist and it lists items that you may need to take along for your presentation in a checklist format. It is especially useful when you are travelling to deliver a presentation or preparing someone else to deliver a presentation in another location. It is based on my own experience taking equipment to present all over North America.

Building humour into your speeches and presentations

Inter-Activ Presenting and Influencing

With her permission I have reprinted one of her examples here: With regard to the speech we discussed, I put in analagies; when the gentleman was talking about a company I compared it to a marriage. Weaving humour into a speech can be a real challenge. In a previous post I recommended that that speakers avoid using jokes in favour of self deprecating stories.

Aging & Money - It's Not Pretty

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

" The article, reprinted from NextAvenue.org, discusses 10. In youth and middle age, the meme was about the "wolf at the door." " The game was to keep that beast from getting in.    Those of you who made it to 65 and older obviously were successful at blocking that wolf. You might even have decided to relax a bit about money. After all, Medicare and free Medicare supplements like Medicare Advantage limit out-of-product healthcare costs.
