Public Speaking Skills:
Say it with Flowers
A friend of mine who practices good public speaking skills made a deal
with flower shop near him. When he had an upcoming program he would
buy all the fresh flowers that hadn't been sold. Because the flowers
were destined for the dumpster anyway, the florist sold them for a really
cheap price, just being thankful to get any amount for them.
The speaker would arrive to big fanfare throwing flowers into the
crowd. Everyone got a flower to take home and depending on the size
of the crowd, some would get a whole bouquet. He also sent big bunches
as his thank you gift to the meeting organizer. He purposely sent so
many that the organizer could not possibly take them all home. His good
(and name) was spread all over the company he was speaking for and the
people in the audience had a blast. This is a unique way of showing
your public speaking skills.
