And the reason you told me all that was why?

My last talk was one of my more important. I treat them all as important. But often the audience and the potential reach of a talk is a determining factor.

Create the Perfect Presentation

If I give a talk and at best there will be 6 people in the room who have no reach, nor aspirations of touching many lives, the level of importance is low. I will prepare just as hard but the talk is not as important because it is not likely to leave the room.

If the people in the room are CEOs, business owners, web site owners, email list owners, and the like, the level of importance rises because of the potential reach of the talk.

At the end of every talk, the listener will be wondering, sometimes out loud, “And the reason you told me all of this is ????”

In my last talk, I missed having an effective closing. My conclusion was not as strong as it could have been.

I didn’t give my listeners something memorable to go home with. I didn’t touch a nerve, I didn’t pinch an emotion. I didn’t give them something to mull over. I didn’t create any buzz to make the experience memorable.

A good conclusion will give your listeners something very striking to take to the buffet, to ask “did you get that?” to the guy/gal next to them, to recall so that they will drift back into your talk and remember your theme, your points.


A great conclusion hits the nerves, the emotions, resounds, stuns, leaves people motionless, speechless or elicits a cheer.

Ask yourself how you plan to wrap up your talk. And give it all you got.

Let us help you get your presentation ready for your next cruise speaking gig.
