Public Speaking Course:
Genius Technique - Split Your Story
Here's another "genius technique" from my public speaking course.
Instead of telling
a complete story from the start to finish try splitting your story instead. Start a
story at the beginning of your talk, but don't finish it. This
builds suspense when you cut off the story at a key point or just before
the expectant end.
It builds up the anticipation in your audience. Then finish the story at the
end of your talk.
When you use this genius technique, you will have every single
person there at the end of your speech because they want to know what
happened at the end of the story, as you weave the split parts back
Create a split, for positive tension, so they do not "mentally
split" from your talk and daydream, or snooze. (No ZZZs allowed.)
You want people hanging on
the edge of their seats, so keep them curious.
