Did You Know:

"Enliven Your 30 second Presentation"

One of the best ways to keep the attention of a group is to hold an exhibit when speaking. Hopefully an object that represents what it is you do or an object that will keep the attention of your audience. When holding the exhibit, make sure every person can see it. Many times a presenter may block the view or does not hold it so that everyone can view the object. Holding it high allows everyone to see it.

Another tip is to address the audience and not the object. Looking at the object occasionally is fine, but only from time to time. Your 30-second time frame is not a problem, however having an object does keep the attention of your audience.

I invite you to join me this Wednesday morning and to join your fellow entrepreneurs in learning how to succeed in growing your business. Our web-address is www.chapelhillleads.com.

The price is small but the value is priceless.

Attention CHLG Members - The Chapel Hill Leads Group's goal is to raise 100+ boxes of cereal a month. If everyone brought one box of cereal to two meetings this month, the Chapel Hill Leads Group would easily exceed the 100 boxes of cereal goal.
