Powerful story!

Fellow speaker,

Professional speaker Judy Carter suggests you make sure your speech stories are personally meaningful for you. As you tell them, you should feel the emotion of the story moment coming into you.

Emotionally,

This isn't at all awkward, is it?

Fellow speaker,

Professional speaker Judy Carter suggests you make sure your speech topic doesn't feel awkward to you. If you are having a problem with the flow of any part of your speech, try to rework that part and, if it still doesn't work, get rid of it.

Awkwardly,

Lie quiet

Fellow speaker,

Professional speaker Judy Carter suggests you create laughs by using this formula for comic lying:
  1. Tell a lie
  2. Quietly admit it was a lie and give an explanation
  3. Quieter still give more details about the lie starting with "Actually..."
  4. Then say, "Anyway..." drawing out the word then quickly changing the subject back to your speech
For example, "The reason I'm so healthy is I walk a 100 miles a day! Well, that's not quite true, I walk about 10 miles a day. Actually, I avoid walking entirely and have people carry me everywhere I want to go. Anyway..."

    Lying,
