To say I was stunned at the reaction I’ve had to my talk is an understatement
Humbled really doesn’t do it justice
I was brutally honest and said that I didn’t know often what I was doing – until AFTER I had done it
Bit of reverse engineering and good to go
One think that a surprisingly large amount of people were uncomfortable with, or simply don’t do is video
Mark Whitehand has a great storytelling method, and has filmed me and my friends and done an amazing job
But as much as you can learn from the guy, if you want THAT magic?
You need to hire him
However I taught a group of 100+ people a quick and dirty way to:
– communicate with your audience
– create compelling stories using infotainment
– basic set up that makes you look professional
Firstly start brainstorming ideas. Either carry a notepad or have a little Evernote on your phone and every time you get an idea for something you could teach your audience
Wrote it down
Get a stack of them together to start with, then when you have 30+, pick one and write it down in a post it note or piece of card at the top
Next write 3-5 bullet points that are in line with the topic underneath
If you are holding the phone, clamp this between your fingers and the phone so you can use the selfie camera and still see the points
I’m now a HUGE fan of doing this LIVESTREAM now
Because the fear of fucking up, doing it over and over again, and then NOT doing it is simple removed
Live in 3…2…1 and your on
Trust me this helps you ‘get over’ the problems you have NOT doing this, because you have just announced to your audience
Remember your audience are your audience because YOU have skill, value and something useful to share
But for the love of God do NOT hard teach – as a rule it needs to have a good story of two, be infotaining and you want to demonstrate your value but also keep people’s attention and enjoy their time with you
If you can evoke emotion?
Even better too
Don’t try and be someone you are not, enjoy it, keep it simple (3-5 key takeaways), don’t over think it – and practice
Like do this every day for 30 days
Every day WITHOUT FAIL
And I guarantee you in a month your audience will be more connected to you, you will of added value and, your reach will of grown and you probably will of made some sales too
Getting over yourself quite a good thing eh? 😉
