Public Speaking Course:
Do you remember the thoughtful, quiet, cigar smoking detective on the TV series 'Columbo'? Most people do because the show is still in reruns all over the world and every now and then they shoot a new episode. One of Detective Columbo's trademarks is when he would start out the door then stop and say, "Oh. Just one more thing."
I teach a similar technique for you presentation in my public speaking course
(but without the cigar, it is hard
to speak while chomping). Here's how the Columbo technique works:
Save one of your really key points . . . maybe your most
important point . . . then suddenly leave the topic you were
on. . .and then say "Oh. Just one more thing" then deliver your
important message. The surprise of what you deliver is part of mastering
what you learned in your public speaking course.
