5 Things People Never Say


“Wow, that meeting was great. I wish it was a lot longer.”

“When she explains things everything seems more complicated. It’s great.”

“He never gets to the point. I love listening to him.”

“It’s always hard to understand his main message, which is why I love his presentations.”

“Her slide decks look like a passage from Moby Dick. I wish my decks looked more like that.”

They never say these things. Ever. Instead they complain about meetings and presentations and slide decks that are never clear, never get to the point and never end on time. What do people say about your meetings and presentations? Are you sure you know what they say?

The rules are simple:

Be clear.

Be brief.

Be seated.

Have a great day.
