A recent client introduced me to a real treasure, literally, by the name of Julian Treasure, who is the most refreshing, original, and accomplished presenter I have seen in a long time. And I am excited to share him with you. As you watch his ten minute Ted Talk video, see how many best presentation practices (interest, flow, visuals, variety, voice, etc.) you notice and how many you can incorporate into your own presentations and conversations.
Treasure's talk, “How to Speak So That People Want to Listen,” is a must view for anyone who is serious about selling, influencing, persuading or building relationships with others.
We declared our independence from the British more than 200 years ago, but Treasure is one Brit you may well want to know further. Enjoy the video.
P.S. Julian Treasure is the chair of the Sound Agency, an English firm in the unusual business of advising worldwide businesses -- offices, retailers, hotels -- on how to use sound. He asks us to pay attention to the sounds that surround us. How do they make us feel: productive, stressed, energized, or acquisitive?
