THE ART OF COMMUNICATION 2 – CLARITY

Have you ever have listened to someone and wondered what the heck they are talking about? Or what point they are trying to make?

When performing improv scenes or telling a story, there are three things I need to establish quickly so the audience can sit back and enjoy, allowing me to take the lead, instead of them anxiously searching for clarity: Where I am Who I am What I am doing

This all means having to be make fast solid decisions and go with them. I know there are some excellent examples of how not to do this out there, mostly from politicians, and the result is a confused populace who just turn off or lose trust.

What would you add as your pet want for a clear presentation?

Any horror stories you just have to share?

"I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Cathy yesterday on her Speaking Out programme at Phonic FM. I was really nervous but Cathy's warm manner and professional approach made the whole thing fun. She had thought carefully about what questions would help me speak confidently about things I am passionate about" Morag Kitt Reflexologist
