How do you feel when you sit through a lecture?  

Guess what? Your audience doesn’t appreciate a lecture. If you want to connect with them, engage them with stories and relevance. 

When you want them to hear and remember your important message:

  • State, “This is important.” Then give your important message.
  • Pause, right before, and after, you say your main point.
  • Deepen the tone of your voice to increase “the weight” of your point.
  • Move immediately before – then stand still while delivering the key point.
  • Smile, because you look more confident when you smile.
  • Tell a story of how this lesson was learned or applied.
  • Repeat your main point during the presentation. You might state it three times.
  • Reinforce the words with images or emotion. It helps people remember the words.
