Pat Flynn on the Smart Passive Income blog provides 33 tips for public speaking in a 38 minute video. I like his suggestion about mingling with the audience to understand them better before the presentation. I don’t like his suggestion to start things off by showing a video because your presence right from the start should be used to begin developing a rapport with the audience. His alternative of telling a story is much preferable in my opinion and I would go further to emphasize not relying on over scripting which can make you come across as being robotic rather than being spontaneous and engaged. There is lots more in the video so give it a try if you are looking for suggestions to creatively make your presentation more interesting.
