Cruise Ship Speaker – Belew

After a great first talk in front of a large and responsive crowd, I was down after the second talk. Barely 1/3 the number of people of the first crowd showed up.

Maybe I thought to much of myself and how I did. Or maybe it was the timing of the second talk. The cruise activity director assured me it was. Late afternoon talks just don’t see people, he said. But it was the only time slot available.

But the third talk, lots of people returned. And new people, too. And questions. Good questions. Good engagement. Fun.

The time slot for the third talk was the same as that of the first talk. The time slot does make a difference. As does the competition for the time slot. There were 6 other extra events scheduled to happen at the same time as my last time slot. I was expecting even less people than my second talk. But I was pleasantly surprise. Nearly a full house again – in the bar/lounge. It was great.

Point – Time slots make a difference. But, be ready to give whoever shows up whenever they show up, your very best. These people share = give part of their vacation time to you. Give them something back.
