Stage Time--On Stage

Speaking Of...

Last Saturday I had a real dose of Stage Time. On a stage. don't upstage contestants or awardees; note, American Idol hosts--calling attention to yourself and upstaging contestants reflects poorly on you. A stage is sacred space for a speaker. Tags: stage , hosting , contestI presided over a Tall Tales speech contest, in front of more than 100 in the audience.

Drudge Report - Trump Theatrics Upstaged by "Hamilton" Anti- and Pro- Antics

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

In addition, Brandon Dixon, who plays Aaron Burr, addressed him from the stage. But, unfortunately for the master showman, Trump, the people's drama is upstaging his own theatrics. The conservative Drudge Report finally has headlined with the side shows going on at musical "Hamilton." " That began last night. But, Drudge Report might have waited to post on all this until the pro-Trump folks joined in on the antics. They did a flash mob at "Hamilton."

Public Speaking: Teaming Up with Another Presenter

Great Public Speaking

When you decide to team teach, select only partners you trust not to upstage you. This will prevent their perception that the off-stage team member is interrupting the on-stage member. To keep the interest of the audience, position one presenter on the left side of the stage and one on the right side of the stage. Have a place for the off-stage presenter to sit when the other presenter is speaking.

The dynamic prop: 6 questions for speakers to ask

The Eloquent Woman

Also among my favorites: Neuroeconomist Paul Zak sprayed the TED stage with oxytocin from a syringe while discussing the link between this hormone and feelings of trust and morality. Make sure you are not upstaged by your devices. Blame it on Bill Gates: In 2009, during a TED talk about his foundation's work to eradicate malaria, he opened a gigantic jar while delivering this part of this talk.

Nick R Thomas - A Public Speaker's Blog

As I was clearing my props away on the stage at the venue, a VCO (now known as WI Advisors) started delivering a talk of her own, which began with asking whether any of them had considered how, for example, self-massage could lead to 'a whole new you'. All eyes were upon me still on the stage behind her and I couldn't resist reacting to this with some exaggerated facial expressions. and I got off the stage. You should never upstage the speakers who follow you.
