Methods to convey content
Practical vs. theoretical input
Techniques in public speaking are manifold. It would be too much to explain all of them. This section on methods to convey content is therefore meant to make you become aware of aspects you can prepare to ensure that your message comes across. This section focuses on creating a balance between practical and theoretical input.
Rule #1: Do not talk in abstract concepts for more than 10 minutes at a time! (This is the absolute maximum of your audience’s attention span.)
For the purpose of giving this section a little more structure, the different approaches will be split into aspects concerning the session’s structure and those concerning the audience’s involvement.
