His best opener
“I am sorry, I’m super sorry, I’m super extremely sorry… But I cannot tell you anything new today about communication. Everything about communication has been said already. By one man 2300 years ago. His name Aristotle”. In general, great way is to open is with a personal anecdote starting with a moment in the past.
His stage fright moment
Ready to give a speech in rhymes. As a professional speaker, his pride didn’t allow him to use notes. Big fear of forgetting his text. We’re humans and stage fright can hit at any time.
Florian compiled thousands of feedback notes. He put them all in an Excel sheet and found patterns for better communication. PlusPlus is all about making your content, delivery and slides even better.
Rhetoric- The Public Speaking Game
Inspired by Monopoly, and by the nonexistence of any public speaking board game. Co-created with John Zimmer.
