oHere’s a Great Tip: Don’t Use Buzzwords!
Fred Miller, “NO SWEAT Public Speaking!”
Here’s a great tip: Don’t use buzzwords!
Every industry, and I’ll bet yours, has buzzwords, acronyms, techno-speak. Don’t use that!
You don’t impress people with words they don’t know. You make them feel stupid! If they feel stupid, they’re going to turn you off, and they’re certainly not going to do business with you.
Let me give you example: I work with some people in the financial industry, and they’ll have prospects and customers in front of them and they’ll talk about ETFs or EFTs, I’m not even sure what it is, and mutual funds and derivatives. And the people are sitting there in the audience going, “Yeh. Got it!” They don’t! And they won’t work with those folks who told them those words.
We see the Emperor with no clothes; no one says anything.
That’s my tip. Keep buzz words, acronyms, and techno-speak out of your presentation.
Do that, and I guarantee: Your next presentation will be positively, absolutely; There’s no doubt in my mind – that presentation will be – NO SWEAT!
