The biweekly review of speaking topics over at Six Minutes blog tries to outdo Twitter’s 140 character limit by proposing six-word speeches:
- SpeakerNet News held a contest soliciting six-word speeches. Participants were asked to capture speaking wisdom (in several categories) in just six words. Difficult? Impossible? Check out some of the winners:
Give wisdom away; it returns tenfold. (Charlie Hawkins)
Stand up, be great, sit down. (Margaret McDonald)
Speak eloquently, be funny, get paid (Doc Blakely)
Reading from PowerPoint slides brings snores. (Pamela Alexandra)
This reminds me of public speaking haiku!
