Patricia Fripp's Ten Pitfalls to Avoid in Public Speaking

by Gilda Bonanno

Master speaker and executive speech coach Patricia Fripp has written a very useful blog post about the ten pitfalls to avoid in public speaking.  I especially like her Pitfall #3 - No Memorable Stories:

"3. NO MEMORABLE STORIES. People rarely remember your exact words. Instead, they remember the mental images that your words inspire. Support your key points with vivid, relevant stories. Help your audience “make the movie” in their heads by using memorable characters, exciting situations, dialogue, suspense, and humor."
