Snowquester: Weather as bonding topic

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

The sweet spot in bonding with strangers, neighbors, service providers, and even classmates and clients from decades ago has been the weather.    At least since Irene.    As Sandy and Nemo followed, the pull force of concern about the weather intensified. The next storm Snowquester , which sounds like an ONION spoof, could increase that momentum or end it, as communities along the Northeast Corridor develop storm fatigue.

Ideas - That's why clients and even some employers are buying Baby Boomer writing services (not experience)

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

  However, those contracting services and even hiring those in communications want the ideas.    They could be about what kinds of topics to pursue. Some have assumed that, with the economy in recovery, that aging Baby Boomer me is back in demand because clients and employers value experience.    And can again afford to pay for it.    That assumption may not be 100% accurate.

Presenting in Africa

Professionally Speaking...

I found this to be a richer format for attendees as it gave them a number of perspectives on a given topic and encouraged greater dialogue among panelists and between panelists and audience. One of the presenters at the Kenya KAWBO conference, Dr. Julius Kipng'etich, Director of Kenya Wildlife Service , gave me a great definition of PowerPoint I hadn't heard: "PowerPoint is too many points without power.".

Today I gave a 30-minute presention at the Jewish Communal Service Associations annual conference. The topic? Wednesday, June 3, 2009 When Giving a Short Presentation. Fearless Public Speaking. Now how in the world can you possibly hope to teach public speaking in 30 minutes?

And I also seem to have gotten myself lost in a loop of this week’s topic: the diacope , which is a wonderfully useful rhetorical tool for creating impact and soundbites.

Award-winning service”. Our focus is service. Timely service”.

Public Speaking Training – The Essential Guide

Below, I discuss the topics that I cover in my trainings. I turned down those opportunities because I did not feel that I could properly provide the requested service and I referred them to someone else. However, it is not possible to cover every public speaking topic in a meaningful way and there is usually little or no time for practice. All of these topics are important and all of them contribute to the success of a speech or presentation.

In Presentations, Less is More

Professionally Speaking...

Although it sounds counter-intuitive, it's less work for a presenter to just include everything he knows about a topic rather than assessing what the audience may already know and then what would be most valuable for them. depending on the circumstances of the presentation, it may not be a bad idea to simply whet the audience's appetite for your topic and leave them wanting more information [e.g.,

How to simplify your presentation without dumbing it down

Speaking about Presenting

You cannot reach simplicity without understanding the complexity and subtleties of your topic. Complex: “Human resource assets are being deployed in the operational environments under maximum pressure in order to impact our customer service benchmarks.&#.

It's hard to describe.

Speak Schmeak

But when someone asks you about your service or product, you better be able to describe it. This might be hard if you have a lot of topics, but the best way to describe what you speak about is to share the general theme of your presentations. I speak about topics related to public speaking. If, as I mentioned above, your speaking topics are unrelated and diverse, pick the ones that make sense with the group you're talking to, and focus on those.
