My East Coast Fripp Associate and speech coaching expert Sims Wyeth writes great pithy presentation paragraphs. How do you like this one?
Presentation Skills Are Like Boxing
Sims writes “A boxer holds his elbows close to his sides to protect himself from crippling blows. He uses his arms as armour.
When presenters do this, they look small and timid, as though they fear the audience.
The audience is not your opponent. Don’t let your body describe them that way. Embrace them. Spread your wings. Open your arms. Show a little armpit.”
Patricia Fripp’s speaking school is coming up June 24 in Las Vegas. This is where you learn how to go from good to great to awesome! Why not add a little Hollywood to your presentation?
