Here are some points extracted from the video:

  • Wow your audience
  • Sell an experience
  • Make numbers and statistics meaningful
  • Analogies help connect the dots for your audience
  • Make it visual
  • Point a simple picture that doesn’t overwhelm
  • Give ’em a show
  • Identify your memorable moment and build up to it
  • Rehearse, rehearse, rehearse
  • Spend the time to rehearse
  • One more thing…
  • Give your audience an added bonus to walk away with
