Twitter – The Presenter’s New Best Bud – Part 11 – Real Friends Help You Be Better

Do you have a friend who is willing to tell you the truth, even when it’s something you don’t want to hear – but you know it’s something you need to hear?  My husband Rich is like that.  One of the things I love best about my husband is his ability to be direct.  It doesn’t mean I always love hearing those pieces and parts where I’m not perfect.  But it saves me a lot of heartache later when I do.  Well Twitter can be that …

Twitter – The Presenter’s New Best Bud – Part 8 – Making the Most of Twitter During the Presentation

Gee, looking back over the last 7 posts (has it really gone on this long?) it’s a bit like expecting a new baby.  There’s a lot of preparation and fuss during a pregnancy just like there’s a lot of fuss and preparation to prepare an audience to tweet.  But just like with a pregnancy the most important part is the baby, so too with your presentation in that the most important element is your content.  Let’s not forget that!

So you’ve set the tone, told the audience …

Twitter – The Presenter’s New Best Bud – Part 7 – Coaching Your Twitter Moderator

My husband has run triathlons for several years, all the while inviting me to join him.  I eventually decided that while I had no desire to run or swim, it might be fun to ride bicycles together.  I always liked riding bikes as a kid and it would give us a way to exercise and spend time together.  While of course I didn’t forget how to ride a bike, the new bicycle I got had way more moving parts than I remembered as a kid.  I …

Twitter – The Presenter’s New Best Bud – Part 6 – The Twitter Interaction

My mom was a great cook… but she didn’t have a ton of patience.  Consequentially, she never taught me to cook and her cooking always seemed to have this mystical quality.  I lived in the dorms throughout college so I never learned the culinary arts during that time either.  Rich and I married the same weekend as I graduated from Iowa State University and, fortunately for both of us, we received a couple of cook books as wedding gifts.  When I finally cracked open the cook …

Twitter – The Presenter’s New Best Bud – Part 5 – Setting the Stage for Twitter Interaction

You’ve taken the first steps.  You’ve tweeted about the event.  A few of your pals retweeted your posts.  The day of the event arrives.  It’s your first time presenting with Twitter audience interaction.  My first piece of advice…

Be Vulnerable

I’m a competitive person.  Not being athletic, I steer away from sports because I despise losing.  Not being especially strategic, I quickly tire of board games that involve deep thinking.   But 7 years ago when I found out that the Toastmasters organization had speech …

Twitter – The Presenter’s New Best Bud – Part 4 – Whoops Two More “Before You Speak” Points

I can’t believe I almost forgot this point!
Let me start by confessing that I am a learning junky.  I love to attend webinars and live events with educational content.  I especially love watching a good speaker.  But I know, and I’m guessing you do too, that the speaker doesn’t have to be a good presenter to get great value out of the material they present.

At a recent in-person event I attended, the speaker’s delivery wasn’t that good – but he had excellent content and I got …

Twitter – The Presenter’s New Best Bud – Part 3 – Engage Before Your Presentation

I’m scheduled to speak at a breakout session on February 5th for the social media conference SoCon in Atlanta (more info at http://SoCon11.com).  I started tweeting about #SoCon11 on January 6th, the same day I first saw my mug on the SoCon speakers’ web page and figured they couldn’t change their minds!

Other than being elated and honored to be asked to speak, why would I tweet about #SoCon11?  Consider this…

I myself have just over 400 followers on Twitter.  From January …

Twitter – The Presenter’s New Best Bud – Part 2 – The Terminology

Did you ever feel like you’re the last person to know…something?  I do.  So when I know something before someone else, it always surprises me.

I was talking to my friend Marty, who, as far as I knew, had been active on Twitter longer than I had.  I asked Marty to help me with using Twitter for a presentation.  I mentioned what hashtag I’d be using, he said, “What’s a hashtag?”  I figured since I knew what a hashtag was, everyone must know!  So Marty learned a …
