Perfect Your Timing
One word botched, mumbled, or out of order can sink the ship. Practice your delivery.
Here’s an example from Rich’s Current Humor Newsletter: “Our After Dinner keynoter comes to us from a humble beginning. He started out as an After Snack speaker.”
Another example by Michael Iapoce: “Most of the speakers you’ll hear today constitute a sort of who’s who in the industry. I’m more in the category of who’s he.”
You’ll notice that one word makes or breaks the entire story. You can’t fumble that word or line in your story.
