How to interest your audience - Deepstash

How to interest your audience

  • People are interested in extraordinary facts about ordinary things.
  • People are interested in themselves.
  • To be a good conversationalist, lead others to talk about themselves and their interests.
  • Use human interest stories to illustrate your points. Glorified gossip and people's stories will almost always win and hold attention. 
  • Be concrete and definite. Do not belong to the “poor-but-honest” school of speakers. Do not merely say that Martin Luther was “stubborn and intractable” as a boy.
