Public Speaking Course:
Tie one on (for men only)
My professional speaker friend, Paul Radde, gave me this great tie tip many years ago, which is now taught in my public speaking course.
After taping one of my first major videos, I noticed that my tie was crooked for pretty much the entire presentation. It looked bad in person, but it looked really, really BAD on video.
Here is the "trick of the trade" from my public speaking course:
1. After your tie is on, run the skinny part of the tie through the loop in the back of the main part of the tie.
2. Take a tie clip, or you could use a large paper clip or safety pin, and clip the skinny part of the tie to your shirt.
3. Put the tie clip or pin on the skinny part of your tie below the loop.
This holds the main part of your tie perfectly in the center for even the most animated presenter and hides the clip.
Thanks to Paul, this tip has made my tie look great for the last seven years . . .
Oh, by the way Paul, can you come up with a tip that will help my face look better? hahahahaha
