David Brooks – Make a point; tell a story

I had the fortunate opportunity to the 1990 World Champion of Speaking, David Brooks speak last week and was impressed with his ease with humor, believability, and sincerity. He just has that special something that says, ‘listen to me’.

David said that we should move away from giving speeches and gravitate towards telling stories. Many people believe ‘nothing happens to them’ that’s worth a story. That is entirely false. Listen intently, keep a story journal, and you’ll find a wealth of ‘stories’ to choose from when it’s time to shine before an audience.

Kudos to David Brooks for giving this Toastmaster some fine ideas and encouragement. Great job.
