Darren’s #10 Speaking Mistake was, Not Getting Clear on the Message. (more on his top 10 list here).
I was asked recently, “What if I don’t have a point for my speech?”
My reply…”Why are you speaking?”
In Darren’s session, he made two points about this mistake that I felt were very important:
1. What do you want the audience to think about differently when your done?
2. What happens three days later?
Is your point clear to the audience, and will it resonate with them well after the speech?
Remember – 10 words or fewer…and if you aren’t clear about your message, your audience won’t be either!
