Three Days, Three Cities, Three Audiences

Trying to tailor talks to audiences and groups.  Aiming to maintain simplicity, humour and elements of surprise to keep attention and aid retention of information.  This has involved using a hammer to smash up an item to illustrate one point, offering spot prizes for spot the difference and other mini “competitions” during the talk plus in one version, a strong visual aid that was provided for each audience member for them to work with.

I think we have achieved some degree of “stand out” but it has been hard to balance the spontaneous passion with the number of slides and getting the two to balance.  Two more talks to go on the UK tour – one to my old school over lunch – and one to a main church service on a given theme.  Very different genres here so working hard to get the formats, lengths and delivery just right.
