Credibility Is King & Queen: Is Your Content Google-Proof?
Have you ever wondered about some of the 'stuff' you say in your presentations? Such as, “Do I know where that information came from or am I just putting my spin on something I heard before? Is there a factual basis for what I share? Do I sometimes say things because they sound good (and sometimes, even sexy)?”
Nowadays, it is pretty easy to fact-check your ‘material’ so it behooves you to make sure that what you say is ‘Google-Proof.' But, as you also know, Google is not the definitive authority on what is true and what isn’t! So what can you do?
As the field of speaking continues to mature as a profession, it is necessary that we, as professional speakers, ensure that what we are sharing and telling our audiences is grounded in truth. It can be your truth (based on your experiences) and/or it can be supported by research (based on actual experiments). Both ways work, but we need to be careful when we cross the line from ‘experiential’’ to experimental’ while presenting.
You'll learn to:
- Identify three major speaking myths/stories people use
- How to do "quick & dirty" research
- Bust some speaking myths/stories
So come join us as we explore some of the speaking content myths that are out there and examine some methods to ‘Google-Proof' your content.
