Imagine attending the world's most preeminent trade show about training education and all the presenters/trainers are awful! At a tradeshow about training?!?!? Something had to be done.
In Train Like a Rockstar: Speaking Tips from a Stand-Up Comedian, Jeff Birk puts his 25+ years experience as a headlining comedian and Fortune 500 corporate trainer into this fantastic, no-frills "here's the way you do it" book. Presenters, trainers, and public speakers at any level will learn techniques and skills stemming from the author's thousands of hours on comedy club stages, corporate event keynoting, and trade show presentations. Topics include:
Humor techniques for public speaking and/or training
How to capture your audience in your first two minutes
Storytelling methods that move hearts, as well as create laughter
How to handle bored, busy, or booing audience members
Lists of jokes to use for a variety of industries, and much more
It's not just about being funnier. Jeff's is a balanced approach combining numerous tactics which result in helping one communicate better and make a lasting impression. We all know what it's like to sit through a "death by PowerPoint" presentation which lacks flow, stories, humor, a call to action, or any direction at all. This book will not only help those seeking to be better public speakers, but will also cause your attendees to leave your presentations saying, "That was the best presentation I've ever seen."
