How make a Fascinate presentation more fascinating

by Sally Hogshead on August 2, 2013

Are you a visual person? If so, you like to learn ideas in a graphic way.

When I spoke to 500 trainers recently, a graphic facilitator captured my Fascinate keynote in real time, drawing while I was giving the presentation. Presenting concepts visually helps people “see” the ideas.

This outline describes how to reach your personality’s highest value, and communicate in 9 seconds or less. Cool!

The moment every presenter dreads…

by Sally Hogshead on July 18, 2013

The moment I walked on stage for a recent speech, my microphone died.

How can you over-deliver for your client if audience can’t hear the speech you flew 5,000 miles to deliver? My suggestion:

Always have Plan B ready, to keep them engaged, so you don’t get flustered and they don’t get bored. In this case I said:

“Don’t worry, I’ve been trained in MIME… and I’ll be delivering the entire speech in interpretive dance.”

By the time the laughter died down, my new mic was ready to go, and the speech went on to a standing ovation!

How to make fascination contagious » My interview with Simon Mainwaring

November 20, 2012

Most brands talk at us. (And as a result, we ignore or event resent them.) But a few brands go about things entirely differently. They provoke us. Inspire us.
