I got a nice compliment from the self publishing guru Dan Poynter
who attended one of my Internet Marketing seminars. He said,
“Tom, you have a really nice balance of speaking and visuals.”

This was very pleasing to hear because it’s exactly what I teach
in the “Wake ’em Up Speaking System.” During the course of a
grueling, high content day, I:

1. Spoke
2. Used a variety of video CDs which I paused and discussed when
appropriate.
3. Used a white board on the opposite end of the room (I made
people stand up and walk to the back of the room to see that
segment.
4. Used a comical prop to make a point.
5. Used other props as demonstrations and also made people stand
up and move to another part of the room to view them.
6. Used audience input.

Sometimes I use dueling flip charts. Here’s a variety of
positions that will keep them interested:

=> Two or more flip charts at the front of the room

=> Many spread around the room

=> One or more at the front and the others at the back of the
room, or

=> Several at the back of the room.

The idea is to vary as much as possible the type of material the
audience is seeing and hearing in an effort to keep their
attention. Don’t go too long without making a significant change
in delivery technique.

This technique works for keynote length presentations all the way
up to multiday workshops.
