Public Speaking Course: 

Genius Technique - Split Your Story

Another genius technique from my public speaking course is to split your story. Start a story at the beginning of your program, but don't finish it. This builds suspense when you cut off the story at a key point or just before the expectant finish.

It builds anticipation in your audience. Then finish the story at the end of your talk.

When you use this genius technique, you will have every single person there at the end of your speech because they want to know what happened at the end of the story, as you weave the split parts back together.

Create a split, for positive tension, so they do not "mentally split" from your talk and daydream or worse fall asleep. (No ZZZs allowed.)

You want people hanging on the edge of their seats, so keep them curious.
