Mindless, stumbling creatures with an insatiable appetite for BRAINS! When you think of zombies, most likely you don’t think “great public speakers.” The zombie delivery style would certainly be lacking, but that does not mean we cannot learn something valuable about public speaking from the undead.
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.
And if you see anything that will help East Coast speakers learn from Sandy, please leave a comment to tell us about it.
