Perfect Cruise Ship Presentations

Speakers, including the intrepid cruise ship lecturers can say the dumbest things.

One such dumb thing we often hear, “I am really excited to be here …”

I want to respond with, “If you are here under duress, then please, by all means, leave.”

Enthusiasm should be plainly evident.

Nobody should ever have to practice being enthusiastic. That would be like asking the bubbles on soda pop to practice overflowing when they are poured into a cup.

What a speaker might need to practice, however, is letting down their inhibitions.

A speaker should not be afraid to let their voice grow in volume, or break with emotion.

A speaker should not be afraid to laugh without inhibition or smile with glee.

A speaker should not be afraid to have a bounce in their step or to flail their arms to make a point.

I sometimes, okay, often can be found pacing back and forth moments before I go on stage. The nervousness is long gone. I have become antsy. I can’t wait to get going.

A speaker should never have to tell themselves to speak louder or quicker for emphasis. It should be the opposite.

“Slow down, tiger. Lower your voice a bit. We are with you.”

Be excited. And when you are, don’t be afraid to show it.
