  • You’ll learn how to improve your flow with an old fire-fighting trick.
  • You’ll discover what air travel and writing have in common.

  • I missed the first few minutes of the presentation (my computer doesn’t work well with Zoom so I used
    the phone. But the speaker talked about unclear writing and pacing better or people leave. I found the
    principle applies to narrating like today’s speaker: Be Very Distinct in speech. Make sure you don’t omit
    consonants like d, p, t, . I suggest she listen to the recording and pay attention to phrases like “an wanning to just leave insead of an*d* wan*t*ing to jus*t* leave and *d*o some*th*ing else. I misses a lot of what was said because I simply cannot discern the actual words due to failure to be VERY CLEAR
    in all of the consonants that fade easily if they are not emphasized in syllables, and SLOW DOWN in those
    syllables because of they’re streamed tightly together with no obvious break between them, i cannot
    understand close to half of the words being said. Listening to the recording should be a very
    enlightening experience if you become aware of what’s missing in what’s being said during the flow
    of syllables through a sentence. I’m listening to the speakers as I type this, and I’m seeing a frightening
    frequency of these sentences that are missing very useful sounds. So SLOW DOWN with “pacing and
    flow” since it’s the topic of today’s presenation. A good way to learn how to avoid that problem, take a
    course (like I did in college when I was hired as a radio announcer and engineer for six months called
    “voice and articulation” taught by a professor heading the dramatic arts program and it was a very
    useful investment besides being incredibily educational. Every American could benefit from that
    experience. (Just do a Google search if you want a stunning list of resources out there just waiting
    for you to go look at the opportunities offered out there. Well worth the trouble. It’s as important
    as clear writing which comes from clear thinking. Clarity is clear everywhere in life. That’s a good
    thing to be aware of and paty attention to it.

    are 46 people in our family, (some well-credentialled professionals) — what a never-dull experience!]

    • On replays there is the availibility to slow down the video to .5 or .75 under settings. I know it does nothing for the live presentation. You just may have to type in the Q&A and/or chat as a reminder during the live presentation.

      • I usually remind everyone that’s an option… to ask me to speak more slowly in the Q&A. 🙂
