Working With Words

Forrest Gump is known for having said Life is like a box of chocolates. It occurred to the author in a dream one night, that life is more like a bowl of strawberries.

More precisely, public speaking is like a bowl of strawberries.

A few strawberries, freshly picked off the plant and immediately eaten, can be delicious.

A bushel basket of them sitting in front of you with the expectation you had to eat them, here and now, wouldn’t be.

But what about a nice strawberry sundae or a good-sized, mouth-watering portion of strawberry shortcake?

When it comes to public speaking, there are times when fewer words are better.

There are times we are bombarded with a speaker telling us everything they know about a subject.

There’s too much to absorb… so we tune out.

Then there is the strawberry shortcake of presentations.

This is where the speaker whets your appetite, gives you just enough of a serving that you are close to being full and leaves you wanting more.

Working With Words: Adding Life to Your Oral Presentations provides you with the recipe for using words to help you become a dynamic speaker.
