Bring LOVE into your presentation

This Valentine's Day, I want to bring back a couple of previous posts with the theme of love -- loving your audience as well as yourself.

Take some time to read about how bringing love and gratitude to your audience creates a deeper and more meaningful connection with them and increases your "know, like and trust" factor.

Enjoy these blasts from the past and please accept my love and gratitude for being a part of my community!

L.O.V.E. (inspired by the Michael Jackson movie "This is It")

Love conquers all...

Complete your presentation with gratitude

Falling in love with the real you

Hi Lisa,


I missed this older post about L.O.V.E. but I found myself strongly agreeing with the sentiment. The longer I'm involved with public speaking the more I realize that 'it's not about me' - it's all about the audience. Approaching everything you do from an audience centered perspective, not worrying if the audience will like you but focusing on how you can bring happiness and value to the lives of the people who have come to hear you speak. Connection is so very (vitally) important between the audience and the speaker, and it really has to come from the speaker first. If your audience is going to like and care about you, then you'd better like and care about them. And their needs should be at the front of your mind when you take the stage, and not your own needs.


Your post really reminded me of this. I also liked the bit about humility - a dash of humility never hurts either.


Nice Post

Thank you, Ian! I'm glad this one resonated with you. I wish more speakers would adopt this approach.
