7 Reasons Why Speakers Flop

Logo_mi_32x32 Mark Sanborn offers 7 reasons why speakers flop, and explains each one in detail at Maximum Impact:

The beginning of excellence is the elimination of foolishness. You can ramp up your speaking performance by analyzing your last presentation with these seven questions:

  1. Did I stick to my allotted time?
  2. Did I develop and present purposefully?
  3. Was I thoroughly prepared?
  4. Did I capture attention at the very beginning?
  5. Did I positively influence listeners?
  6. Was I appropriately entertaining, or at least not boring?
  7. Did I end only once?

An affirmative answer to each question virtually guarantees that your next presentation won’t be a flop. Not only will your communication be flop-proof, but you will likely be perceived as an articulate and effective speaker.
