All quotes are not created equal. Strategically place these 13 in any presentation to stimulate, motivate, and reactivate peoples’ inner drive for success.
All memorable presentations share two things in common. They engulf you in an experience created through the artfully told story, and the key points are masterfully reinforced by experience-enhancing quotes. Where do the best speakers find their quotes? Books. Magazines. Online quote repositories. The sources are endless. I track the quotes I write and those of others in a database, and I share them daily on our Facebook Fan page. As a result of my tracking process, I have thousands of quotes to pull from. I’ve discovered 13 that have consistently magnified the power of my speeches and training programs, and by strategically spreading them throughout your presentation, you can create riveting experiences every time you speak. The magic 13 are listed below for your use, and as always, give proper author credit.
