Video: Making Presentations Unforgettable – Kim A. Page

Last week I enjoyed an evening at the SVForum Tech Women’s meeting (men welcome!) hearing a presentation by Kim A. Page on ways to make a presentation unforgettable.

Since the early 1990’s, Kim has worked as a consultant and trainer within the areas of communication and innovation for multinational and local organizations. She’s had several articles published about her communication and innovation methodologies and she is fluent in six (!) languages. Her background is in the fields of dramaturgy, communication and organization development.

Making Presentations Unforgettable

Kim shared tips and tools that help make presentations effective and unforgettable. During her session she discussed the contract between the speaker and his/her audience. The audience brings their “intentional attention” to the event. The speaker is responsible for giving a talk that respects the audience in terms of both duration (not going over time) with content that is authentic, honest, well-researched and delivered in a flexible, juicy manner:

The audience wants to feel that this is special. I’m giving you my diamond, I’m present, I’m here. Give me something that I can use in my life, that’s relevant…

Here’s some edited highlights from her talk.

Five Speech Preparation Secrets

Kim wrapped up the evening by sharing five speech preparation secrets. You’ll be surprised and delighted to hear that buying new underwear can play an important role in helping you prepare for your next talk! Watch the video to find out why.
