The best thing about public speaking is the opportunity to exchange ideas in a forum where everyone has the same goal: to learn more. My style is conversational and instigating. I like to get people thinking, not just sit there and listen to what I have to say. Lectures won’t take you anywhere, discussions are the best part of any presentation and so I make that the central point, giving the audience food for thought at every step and getting them to voice their opinions.
I’ve presented to small groups of 10 people up to large audiences of 300. My favorite topics involve marketing, technology, and how businesses can better leverage both for competitive advantage. Regardless of the length of my presentation I like to spice it up with some humor. People learn better when they laugh and it makes for a more engaging venue.
