Last week, I joined Richard Mullender (a good friend and colleague) at a secondary school in north London. We’d arranged for Richard to deliver a keynote talk on Effective Communication Skills to a large-ish group of sixth formers. An all-boys school, Richard chose as his theme for introducing the topic: ‘How To Chat Up Girls’.
A great example of effective communication – tailoring your talk to suit the needs of your audience! Needless to say, he had their attention…
Afterwards, we went for lunch at a nearby restaurant to talk through plans for a roadshow later this year. We also took the opportunity to do a brief video shoot about an upcoming public event – which you are welcome to attend if you wish! (see below)
As ever, reflecting on the video now, there’s all sorts of changes we’d make – especially since we shot it at short-notice in a (very quiet) restaurant. This might also explain the slight twinkle in Richard’s eye at the outset?!
Then again, as Ed Tate, 2000 World Champion of Public Speaking always says… “done is better than perfect!”
