Remember, it’s not about how much content you have in your presentation, it’s about using the right content.

Don’t make the mistake of bogging down your message in minutia and unclear information. To present a compelling message and build support for your idea, start with “why,” and simply get to the point.

In this episode of Talk Like Someone’s Listening, we take a humorous look at how some public speakers go astray.

If you like these tips, there’s more where that came from. Register for our December 7 Content Framing and Storytelling class. It’s a full-day, highly interactive session in Columbus, Ohio.

And if you missed our previous Talk Like Someone’s Listening videos, you can watch Take a Breath, Three Is the Magic Number, Translate Your Science,  The Joke Will Be On You, Short Words, Big Impact, Watch the Clock, Death by Bullet Point and They Want Answers now.

About Talk Like Someone’s Listening

Public speakers tend to make the same mistakes over and over. We decided to have a little fun with them. “Start with Why” is the ninth and final video in Articulation’s “Talk Like Someone’s Listening” video series. (We’ll be launching a new series soon!)
