Video on How to Speak so People Want to Listen

For my theme of communication during the 7 day video challenge, I found this short (10 minutes) TED Talk by Julian Treasure. Click here. To me, the key is how to speak so people want to listen.

To prepare for live streaming, I cleared some clutter behind my desk in the corner of my office. I had stacks of books which I sorted and put in the right places on overflowing bookshelves. I’ve wanted to accomplish that reorganization for months, or maybe years. The time away from completing my taxes was worth it. I can see the floor behind me and the open space is motivating.

Then I set up the background for the videos I plan to do so I should be ready tomorrow to catch up in the challenge. The live streaming will be on my business Facebook page but I’ll copy the URL here in case you want to see my first attempt. I plan to give tips from my new book, Captivate Audiences to Create Loyal Fans.

I’d like your vote for the topic. Which tip should I talk about first?

  1. Show don’t tell
  2. Avoiding Head hopping
  3. Bookend snippets of life stories

Thanks for your help.
