Bad Cruise Ship Presentations

Bad Cruise Ship Presentations

Standing behind a podium for the duration of your talk is like a ship being landlocked. That metaphor may be stretched a bit, but perhaps you get the idea.

Why You Need A Stage

A stage is meant for cruising. I cruise a lot.

I sometimes come down from the stage if I am elevated, always being mindful that I need/should be visible to my audience AND the camera that is probably recording me so others who couldn’t make it can watch me on the ship’s CCTV.

I like to roam. When available I ALWAYS ask for cordless mic.

It’s more fun and it’s a great way to maintain your audience’s attention if you just move about.

Things I Do On Stage

  • I jump.
  • I squat.
  • I point.
  • I spin.

I don’t do these things for dramatic effect, nor do I do them just for the fun of it. I do them because they complement my talk, my point. It makes sense sometimes for me to squat down and pet my imaginary dog, then raise up and pet my husky (when I am talking Alaska).

Audience Shares the Experience

My audience can experience with me my point by seeing me make the point, not just tell it.

I will always arrive early to my venue to step off the size of my stage so I know how much I can roam. I will take a look at the seating from where I am standing then go to the seating area and look back at various parts of the stage to try to imagine how the audience will see me here, then here, then there.

In short move about and you will be on your way to avoid a bad presentation.

To get on board, reach out and we won’t just tell you what to do, we will work with you step-by-step all the way.
