I recently watched a series of presentations and was struck by the variety of the speakers’ personal styles.
First the leader, chatty, warm and amusing, talking big themes with gentle assurance and a deceptive simplicity.
Next, the expert, reading out a formal scholarly paper with laptop and lectern, with entertaining TV clips in memorable contrast.
And then the seasoned media presenter, dashing off a polished Ignite with quirkily engaging pictures.
All so different – yet each style suited the speaker and the subject, sparking talk, participation and an upbeat note.
Whatever your style, make it yours with preparation and practice, developing your own unique set of skills. PH
