Lost your place? Take a cue from Eddie Izzard. . .

Eddie Izzard is a great role model for how to deal with the audience when your material isn't working. I posted earlier about his comments when his jokes were bombing.

We've all forgotten our place momentarily during a presentation, and instead of panicking, ideally we just glance at our notes and go on. Eddie Izzard goes a little further:

"Um. Oh, I've forgotten the rest of the show. How does it go now?

Emergency joke: Two men went into a pub, and they totally redecorated it. It was brilliant."

Are you an entrepreneur or professional who's looking for better results from your speaking? Are you hoping to build credibility and visibility for your business or cause?
