Public Speaking Skills:
Genius Technique - Split Your Story
Here is a unique public speaking skill to try out. Instead of telling a complete story beginning to end split your story instead. Start a story near or at the beginning of your talk, but don't finish it. This builds suspense when you cut off the story at a key point or just before the climactic finish.
It builds anticipation in your audience. Then finish the story at the end of your talk.
When you use these public speaking skills, you will have every single person there at the end of your speech because they want to know what happened at the end of the story, as you weave the split parts back together.
Create a split, for positive tension, so they do not "mentally split" from your talk and daydream, or snooze. (No ZZZs allowed.)
When using your public speaking skills, you want people hanging on the edge of their seats, so keep them curious.
