Seminar on “How to Conquer Rambling and Emphasize Your Point in Just Three Sentences!”

I am still exhilarated by the extremely favorable audience response to my above seminar presented ten days ago at the Toastmasters District 56 Spring Conference held at the South Shore Harbor Resort in League City, about 30 miles south of Houston. Even though several of the attendees did not have a copy of the handout (the audience size far exceeded the District’s expectations), exactly 85% of those who turned in evaluations rated it “excellent.”

I developed this seminar around the year 2000, after months of frantic research inspired by some shocking episodes on the “Wall Street Week with Louis Rukeyser” television show. In two editions of that preeminent program that were just a few weeks apart, I saw the main guests--both of whom were among corporate America’s most prominent CEOs--ramble and thus cut a sorry figure. During the past dozen years, “how to conquer rambling” has consistently been one of the two most popular topics in my repertoire of short, stand-alone seminars. In 2008, it drew an audience of 600 project managers at the PMI Global Congress—North America held in Denver.

Feel free to call me at 281-463-2500 if you’d like to explore the idea of having me present it at one of your upcoming events.
