Audiences Want Speakers, Not Readers

Speakers who have a written manuscript that they refer to frequently–and even distract listeners more when they turn the pages–are not really speakers. They are readers. And audiences don’t want someone reading to them.

This video gives examples of why relying on a manuscript kills the impact you want to make. Also, I refer you to my new book, which provides guidance on the most effective method of preparation and delivery.
