The Single Best Source for Great Material for Your Next Speaking Assignment is … drum roll, please …
There are a lot of places a speaker can go to get good ideas, good material for their talks.
There is, IMHO, one place that I think will outperform all the others.
The questions you get from your audience when you are finished.
As thoroughly as I am prepared and as comprehensive as I can be with my content, invariably there are questions if I give my audience a chance.
Those questions are great fodder to beef up, veggie up, your talk.
A great practice is to make mental notes of the questions and first chance write them all out after you crowd leaves.
Create an FAQ. Gosh give a talk titled Social Media FAQs or whatever your niche is. Then watch the list grow even more when your audience is given the chance to ask you more questions.
The questions people ask you are the best source I can think of for knowing what it is I want to cover in my talks.
How many questions?
Well , that would depend on the length of my talk and how long it takes to answer questions, wouldn’t it?
Make time for Q & A in your presentations and watch your talks get even better.
