The scientific approach

Fellow speaker,

Associate Professor Michael Alley suggests if you create scientific presentations, you use an "assertion/evidence" approach. Each slide has one point to get across to your audience and contains a title that "asserts" something" and an easy to understand visual that provides the "evidence" of what you asserted.

Assertively,

Help them see their next step

Fellow speaker,

World Champion speaker Darren LaCroix suggests you create different types of videos - each video designed to help you achieve one clear purpose:
  • Answering their question
  • Making a direct sales pitch
  • Customer testimonial 
  • Sales conversion (gives a little content to convert them into a buyer of your product or services)
  • Educational
Videoing,

You've got a brand new key

Fellow speaker,

If you are creating home-made videos be aware of lighting issues. The simplest type of lighting is 2 point lighting (only requires 2 lights) which requires one light be close to you (a "key light") and another light be much further from you (a "fill light"). Here's a video that takes you through it:

Filling in,
