What this means for you, the speaker, is that you must practice your discussion many, lot of times so that you are comfy with your bottom lines and can speak around your concepts using note cards or by means of a PowerPoint discussion. Writing a couple of words per card or per slide will act as your tip so that you can 'talk around' your bottom lines or subtopics.
When I give a discussion on voice, for instance, I have one word at the top of a card which states in huge, vibrant, black letters Intro. From that a person word, I will give my whole opening.
Under that word, I have, once again in huge, vibrant letters Graduate School, then New York City, and lastly, UWO. Following my opening, I know to talk about how I found my real voice in graduate school and the tasks it protected for me in New York City then later on in Canada. Those 4 points - Into through UWO - give me about 10 minutes of product on one 5X8 note card. And each time, I consider that discussion, it will sound a little different. It depends upon my audience and how I feel at the time. I might include a new anecdote or change it up somewhat, once again completely based on the time, the place, and the crowd.
My 50-minute discussion includes 6 note cards. Because the words remain in big print, I can quickly move over to the lectern to see where I am ought to I require. Most of the times, nevertheless, I do not need my notes because I have actually provided the exact same discussion for 20 years. My message stays the exact same each time. It is my anecdotes that change.
By speaking around note cards, I am then able to speak to my audience and not at them, making eye contact throughout the space, targeting my smilers, and seeing the audience's response to me. Which is the discussion of public speaking.
