  • nervousness;
  • humor; and
  • Toastmasters.

[Before we begin, did you catch last week’s review?]

Six Minutes

Week in Review: Six Minutes

It was a very quiet week here at the Six Minutes blog. I was knocked right out of my blogging habits by a fever and laryngitis. It’s never fun being sick, but a speaker losing his voice is just torture!

So, this weekly review is the only article published this week. I’m working on some great articles for the next few weeks…

Week in Review: Public Speaking Blogosphere

Public Speaking Blogosphere

These are the best public speaking articles I read in the past week.

You can use the Push and Pull to deliver your benefits in different ways:
The Push – The air-conditioner is great because you can travel in comfort.
The Pull – The air-conditioner is great because you don’t want to be hot and sticky when you arrive at your destination.

King Solomon has been quoted as saying “there is no new thing under the sun“. When it comes to great speeches, his quote is bang on.

People also tell me they’re better when they wing it. They say they have more energy and passion when they’re not practiced. Simply put–baloney!

Knowing what you are talking about is the number one way to control your nervousness.

When you start paying attention to them, you stop paying attention to yourself and the nerves start to dissipate.

Humor Articles

A trio of humor articles from (or featuring) John Kinde

Toastmasters Blog Articles

Another Weekly Review Comes to a Close…

Finally, I’d like to end by relaying a worthwhile challenge from Ian Griffin:

When planning your next speech, strategic plan or business venture, aim to capture the essence of what you want to say in six words or less.

It works for blog articles too: (1) Public (2) Speaking (3) Blogosphere (4) Week (5) in (6) Review.
