Wake 'em Up!
Ever forget a presenters name just an hour after the presentation was
given? Want people to remember you and what you said, and talk about
you in the hallways? Well, I mean talk about you in good way. In my
public speaking course you will learn many ways to be a No Zzzz's
With "Wake 'em Up" skills, you use some crazy
skill or opening that grabs 'em by the circuits in their brain and has
their total attention. My friend Mike Stahl breaks six solid concrete
blocks. Jim Ziegler memorizes the name of each participant in the room,
and pretty much everyone loves to hear his or her own name.
I'm not strong enough to pulverize, or bright enough to memorize, so
I shoot confetti or fire in the air. It makes them think I am important,
so to wake up and listen to me intently. You could do a beautiful painting
quickly like Conni Gordon might do, or you could ride in on a white
horse for all I care. Just do not let them stay in their comas while
in you are painting a picture in their minds with your Wake 'em
Up techniques learned in your public speaking course! That is my book title, and that
is your job as a public speaker.
