Presentation Skills Tips: Add Muscle to your Message

My high school buddy, Mike

One of the best ways to add some muscle to your presentations is through telling great stories. One of my favorite stories is a true one about my muscle-building high school buddy, Mike Mentzer. I try to weave that story into almost every training session I can, because audiences just love it. What makes a great story? There are 5 main ingredients:
1. Tell it from your heart with passion
2. Create vivid details with picture words
3. Expand on those picture words through your gestures and expressions
4. Use voice inflection to create the tone
5. Craft a memorable message – an unforgettable message
