Executives get our speaker tips

First Tennessee's Executive Highlights magazine's summer 2008 edition includes "Pump Up Your Public Speaking," an interview with don't get caught president Denise Graveline on ways to energize and even enjoy giving your next speech. Here's an excerpt that reflects our philosophy of thinking about your audience first:
"Think about what you were doing during the last speech you sat through," says Graveline. "You were probably making your grocery list or secretly looking at your Blackberry or looking at your watch and thinking, 'How much longer is this going to last?' It takes a lot to crack through the distractions of everyday life, which is part of the reason that speakers get scared. The only way to fix that is to plan ahead."
