Now I Lay Me Down . . . To Talk
When practicing the skills learned in your public speaking course do not be afraid to present
in some odd postures as this can sometimes add greater impact to what
you are saying.
My friend Ron Culbertson starts his talk while standing on a table.
Another friend of mine Barbara Sanfilippo climbs a ladder while on
stage. Zig Zigler kneels. I do a signature story while sitting on a
chair and I have sprawled myself across a table to make a point. You
might be amazed to know that within great public speaking skills, I
have seen speakers doing handstands, backflips, riding a bicycle and
standing on their head, . Of course, I wouldn't do the whole talk
standing on my head, but who knows. . . I might look better that way.
