If one of your fears about Public Speaking is ‘I will lose my place and forget what to say’ and you don’t want to use notes or tent cards to advertise that you are scared of losing your place…..
Twenty slides without words. Twenty seconds for each slide changing automatically. You just fill in the story. People look at the slides while listening to your running explanation. You are lead by the pictures. You speak almost ‘off the cuff’. Everything seems spontaneous. There is nothing to read on the screen. Short, sharp, spontaneous, informative, potentially inspiring depending on the pictures and the story.
I have seen speakers use the technique for a presentation lasting over an hour.
You can rehearse to improve the flow of your patter. Hit automatic on powerpoint or keynote and see what comes out of your mouth. The pictures will keep you on time and pull you along.
