Nick Morgan’s 5 Stupid Speaker Tricks

I am working on a new deck as part of my bullets kill series, and as I conducted some research on the job search in the age of personal branding and social media presence, I ran across another excellent article by one of my go to sources for all things persuasive public speaking, Dr. Nick Morgan. In this Forbes magazine article, Morgan shares with readers five things presenters need to stop doing now. As someone who has fallen victim (and has victimized others) to these strategies/habits, I concur with Morgan–spread the word, ” You’ll be doing the windowless meeting room world a huge favor (Source).

In the same vein, this video pokes accurate fun at the most common behaviors from both presenters and audience members.

What are your public speaking pet peeves?
