By Andrew Johnson
I've learned over the years of speaking to audiences about some of my favorite topics that I need to adapt to the circumstances. And over the time that I have been cruise speaking my talks have developed and grown - in both number and quality.
I watch other speakers and learn from them. And not just the excellent speakers! Many poor speakers have something to teach us - often how not to tackle the task, but sometimes with little gems of good ideas sprinkled within their presentations.
What I learn in my cruise lecturing I apply in my key note talks - and vice versa. Life is a journey - and why would we go on a journey if we don't plan to take anything from the journey. One passenger on a recent Silversea cruise who had seen me before on Celebrity told me how much he enjoyed one of my talks second time through - and how much he valued the way it had grown since the first time (which he had also rated very well).
While you are speaking on free cruises - and before and after - keep your eyes and ears open for new ideas that can help you to develop your style and your content.
Happy cruising FREE
