A Method to This Madness workshop by Marcel Brussee
This workshop will give you
The most important element of speaking off-the-cuff is structure. Structure separates a clear message from panic-stricken, adrenalin-induced, stream of consciousness, word-association, meandering presentation. How do you prepare structure on-the-fly? That’s simple. Don’t. Prepare ahead of time. Have a mental model for answering questions.
With practice, you will soon become an effective impromptu speaker. With enough practice, you will look forward to Table Topics.
