Laser focused on their purpose

Zombies know what their purpose is – human flesh – and they are singularly focused on getting it. Like a zombie, you need to know the purpose of our speech and stay focused on getting that message across to your audience. Always keep you KABOOM statement in mind when speaking. Know the essence of your presentation.

Visit Relationally Speaking for more tips (Zombies are persistent; Zombies stay loose) that will help speakers appreciate Halloween.
