Be a dragonfly

Fellow speaker,

Stanford professor Jennifer Aaker suggests you can make change happen by using the "Dragonfly Effect" (four "wings" working together to take you anywhere you want to go):
  • Focus - focus in on one thing
  • Attention - get your audience's attention
  • Engaging - make a personal connection with your audience
  • Action - get your audience's attention

How to get noticed

Fellow speaker,

Designer Nancy Duarte suggests you can get noticed for your speech if you are:
  • Personal - show the audience some personal challenges  you have had
  • Polar - be on the "opposite pole" from those around you
  • Passionate - speak about things you really really believe in

Making an outline

Fellow speaker,

World Champion Darren LaCroix suggests you use a speech outline when creating your speech:
  1. Opening (related to your speech premise)
  2. Body (with your speech points)
  3. Call to Action
  4. Close
Using this method provides you with a guide as you create your speech.

Outlining,
