« Speaking? 3 Ways To Satisfy Your Audience | Main | 5 Tips to Ethical & Successful Influence »


Becky Robinson

Thanks for sharing your million dollar suggestions for free. It is a great suggestion, and one I can't wait to have the opportunity to try out. I imagine that talking with people ahead of time really helps to build the connection you talked about in your last post. It not only helps the speaker, but also builds the anticipation/enthusiasm of those attending the meeting as well.

You are correct: it does build a sense of anticipation. One more good reason for doing it!

No 3 is good - but sadly often it's out of the rule book. Though perhaps when it is, it is a sign. .

I'm going to try the question routine but again tricky if the time is deliberately set up to force people to run through and to avoid giving feeback

I stopped asking permission and just started talking with people. There were never, ever, any negative ramifications--only positive results and comments.

Steve –
This is perfect! So much of what we learn about in presentation skills is all about standing in front of a room doing formal presentations. We get very little “insider” guidance on how to have an effective board room type presentation. It’s obvious you’re no stranger to these kinds of meetings, and I really appreciate your tips from the trenches. Thanks!
