Gang of geniuses, a question of public speaking etiquette: When a tomato is thrown, are you expected to just take it or can you dodge? And another: What kind of underwear are you supposed to imagine everyone is wearing?
Trenchant issues, guapos and guapettes. Trenchant.
A couple of days ago I talked about my action-packed preparation for a keynote address in Adventures in Preparing A Speech.
Yesterday the opportunity to speak on August 1 in Washington DC came up rather unexpectedly. It’s nearly a done deal, but I’m awaiting word from the final vetting committee. If it works out, I’ll be putting together something else quickly and flying out to dazzle our nation’s capitol with footwork and verve.
I’m ready for both. But I’m always up for hearing what other people have success with. As far as public speaking tips, today’s question is for everyone who has ever had experience, a great success, or a great failure during a public speaking engagement on any size or type.
So, I’ve heard all about imagining everyone in their underwear. This will simply be too many pairs of underwear to imagine. Is there anything else? I also suppose it’s bad form to wet your pants on stage, so I’ll try not to do that either.
Todd, if you’re out there, you commented about speaking at a men’s conference, so I’m calling you out specifically.
