Warwick is is an expert in the art and practice of executive public speaking -he has demonstrated that on the show within 15 minutes. We talked about information overload and how do we get our message across effectively when most people are not even in the present listening to what we are saying.
Warwick took us through the eight practical steps from his book:
Step 1: You the Presenter-Become more self aware by taking The One Minute Presenter Questionnaire, learn the key elements of an authentic speaker, face the causes of public speaking fear with 6 fear-busting practical tips.
Step 2: Treasure your Audience-How to paint a portrait of your audience. Understand the difference between demographics and psycho-graphics. Techniques to gather information about your audience. How to create an avatar of your ideal audience. Essential questions to build up a golden avatarprofile. Why today’s audience expectations are so diverse. Four reasons an audience wants to listen to you. How to create a perspective that starts from the audience’s interests.
Step 3: Produce your Message-First, write a 25-word happy ending that summarizes what you want your audience to think, feel and do at the end of your presentation. Second, think like a movie producer to turn your presentation into a concept that can be used in a variety of different presentations. Third, use characters to make your content come alive by using a 5-step business storytelling process. Fourth, pick out key parts of your speech and like a good TV reporter turn them into soundbites and slogans, which become the tag-lines of your message. more information here about the 8 steps:
