2 Ken Commandments for SCORRE™

Ken sent the following message to group of custom SCORRE™ students. It’s so good, we thought we’d share it with you! For those of you who are SCORRE™ Conference alumni, the verbiage will sound familiar. For those who aren’t, it will all make sense when you come to the next SCORRE™ Conference (hint hint)!

I said it to a speech coach, unabashed but anxious, unprepared for what had worried me all week: a five-minute speech.

4 Ways to Engage Your Audience

Author Candie Blankman

 Your Audience Has More Than Ears

Are you a doodler? As you listen to a friend or sit in a meeting listening to people talk do you find yourself drawing or writing? Are you a clicker? Are you one of those people who click their pen or tap it on your notebook, or fiddle with the buttons on your shirt or beads on your necklace? Or maybe you are one of those people that need to move. You are tapping your feet, drumming with your fingers, twirling your pencil or pen.  Then of course there are those who can just sit quietly without moving and listen for hours. What is up with those peeps?!
