Don’t inflict pain on your audience – by Your Speech Tutor

3 Feb

It fascinates me how people can get up to speak at weddings and other ceremonies, presentations and even professional workshops who clearly have no idea of the pain they are inflicting on the audience. I’m sure you have experienced exactly what I am talking about. Someone makes the big mistake of asking Uncle Bob to be the MC at the wedding because he is a cheery sort of guy who can tell a good yarn after a jug of home brew. He opens up proceedings by telling a couple of really off-colour jokes that aren’t even funny with a score of about 9.8 on the Cringe Factor Scale. You can see the revellers slowly sliding down in their seats under the table and trying to look somewhere else as he rambles on.
