Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

What we should know, NEW YORK Magazine tips us off, is that White's shady lawyer Saul Goodman, played by Bob Odenkirk, won't be offed. In fact, there is a very good possibility that he will star in a spin-off.    At the wrap party, Odenkirk joked that you can judge a series by its spin-offs.   "Mary Tyler Moore" spun off the hit "Rhoda."

"Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior" - Female Serial Killers, Miscreants Compellling

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

A spin-off from "Criminal Minds," the program "Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior" seems to be pulling out all stops in trying to make the series work.  I'm rooting for the spin-off to make it.   For example, it imported the crackerjack IT person Penelope Garcia.    Also, it got it that female serial killers as well as female miscreants are compelling characters.

The Difference Between Good and Great

Speaker Launcher

When you’re getting 2-3 spin offs from every engagement, then you might be able to relax. AND, they can easily share it with others (spin off). Every year American Idol shows us the differences between singers who are good, and singers who can really go the distance. Greatness. Yes, a few slip through the cracks and Pia was a great example of that… but I bet she’ll go by way of Jennifer Hudson).

Are you Consciously Competent?

Speaker Launcher

You give a good speech, but it's not getting you as much spin off as it should. Your positioning is slightly off and it's hard for you to articulate exactly what you do to help people.

Activist PepsiCo shareholder Nelson Peltz wants the company to spin off the beverage division.   Peltz, who heads Trian Fund, would replace beverages with the acquisition of Mondelez, the snack and coffee business split off from Kraft.  A big hunk of that, of course, is the Pepsi which had, at one time, been positioned as the beverage of a new generation.  We Baby Boomers were that new generation.

The Past - PR, Lawyers, et al. Can't Shake Off Its Stink

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

The series is still live, when the original "Law & Order" and the other spin-offs have been a wrap. The misguided meme being foisted on 21st century humans is that the past can be eliminated. Yet great art, ranging from Shakespeare to William Faulkner, has always played out the theme that the past is never the past. Its stink hangs on.    Take Brett Kavanaugh. What he did or didn't do in high school, college, and law school will never be in the past.

On the show she tirelessly pushes the legal envelope to assist victims of sexual crimes.    In real life that mission has also become a major priority for Hargitay.

TED Talk: A story of survival, resilience, and hope

Presentation Zen

If we define plot point, for example, as an event that sends the story spinning off in a new direction, then certainly we can see the decisions to escape to China, and then to South Korea, and then back to rescue her family to bring them on the long complication-filled journey back to South Korea as plot points. Hyeonseo Lee''s 2013 TED Talk describing her escape from North Korea is one of the most compelling and inspiring talks I''ve seen on the TED stage in quite a while.

Pivotal Public Speaking

Everything else springs from that: referrals, spin-offs, product sales — everything. Name the three best speakers you know. Are *you* on your list? If not, are those other speakers better than you? If you ask your clients to name the three best speakers they’ve had at their meetings, are you on *their* list? Top speakers are continually looking for ways to be even better, to have more impact, and they have learned to look to show business performers for clues and techniques.

Horrible historian David Starkey has also got it in for the Scots, Welsh and Irish

Max Atkinson

For Starkey himself, an important spin-off of his 'celebrity' status is that he presumably sells far more history books than most professional historians. Editors of TV current affairs programmes believe, probably correctly, that guests who can be relied upon to say outrageous things are a sure-fire recipe for making their shows more entertaining - and may even help to increase their ratings.

How Memorable is Your Speech?

Speaker Launcher

I believe this to be the key to more spin off). Whenever people find out that I am a coach for professional speakers, they always want to tell me about a speaker that they experienced. It’s rare that they remember the speaker’s name. But frequently they will tell me a story that the speaker told and we’ll be able to piece together the identity of that person.

Are You Asking for the Business?

Speaker Launcher

Just imagine if every audience could provide spin off to 3 more engagements… And if each of those audiences held 3 more engagements… and so on. Whether it be from the platform, or in follow up with clients, most of us are lousy at asking for the business. And, if you were to do a quick calculation, you’d see the cost.

Claptrap 5: In the right places at the right times

Max Atkinson

A spin-off from that was that I found myself being invited to speak at sixth form conferences, where bus-loads of reluctant school children were treated to the dubious pleasure of listening to some of the authors whose work they were supposed to know about. This is the fifth in a series of posts marking the 25th anniversary of the publication of Our Masters' Voices and the televising of Claptrap , which you can watch HERE. Part 2: Eureka!
