It takes one hour of preparation for each minute of presentation time.
A theme is a memory aid, it helps you through the presentation just as it also provides the thread of continuity for your audience.
There are always three speeches, for every one you actually gave. The one you practiced, the one you gave, and the one you wish you gave.
No one can remember more than three points.
The audience only pays attention as long as you know where you are going.
Ask yourself, “If I had only sixty seconds on the stage, what would I absolutely have to say to get my message across?”
No one ever complains about a speech being too short!
Top presenters have total control of their fears. They make fear their slave, not the master.
Humor heals the heckler.
I use many props. The props act as cue cards reminding me of what to say next.
