Don’t Start Your Speech by Telling a Joke

Do you think that starting your speech by telling a joke is a sure-fire way to grab attention and set an upbeat mood for your presentation?

Then watch my video explanation (above) of the pitfalls surrounding joke-telling in your introduction. Note, too, my recommendation for another way to use humor at the start–without risk.

And to hear even more guidelines for becoming a champion speaker, order my audio CD, “How to Speak with Poise, Power, and Persuasion,” available from my online shopping cart. Scroll down the product list until you locate this CD under its original title, “How to Become a Dynamic Speaker!”
