Have you ever wanted to deliver a speech without relying on notes?
That’s the specialty of author Dr. Jim Turrell, who will be speaking at the Tustin Chamber’s monthly membership breakfast on Wednesday, September 10, 2014 at Tustin Ranch Golf Club.
The breakfast will begin at 7:30 am and last 90 minutes. Turrell will be discussing techniques he mentions in his book “Speaking from the Heart,” which was published in 1998. Keeping with the spirit of the topic, he will not be using notes.
Improvising Instead of Memorizing
A major inspiration for Dr. Turrell’s book came from jazz music, which allows improvisation within a solid predictable structure. By knowing what the components of your presentation are and how they fit together like a puzzle, you can express yourself freely without relying on notes, just like jazz musicians.
He wrote the work to help his colleagues who were struggling with speech presentation. He has since traveled the country and has taught his methods of improvisational speaking without memorization to hundreds of people.
This concept of delivering speeches without notes is valuable to all business owners, educators, entertainers, public officials and anyone else who engages in public speaking. Even if you feel more comfortable relying on notes, this information can broaden your perspective on group communication techniques.
If your business involves restaurants, for example, one of the best things you can learn besides local search marketing for restaurants is how to teach waiters to communicate better with customers without memorizing a script.
Admission to the Breakfast
If you wish to attend the breakfast presentation, admission is $20 for members and $25 for non-members and walk-ins. Even if you run an online business and your focus is local search marketing for restaurants, you can meet with other chamber members and expand your network.
