Structure is important. In storytelling and in presentations it allows your message to be engaging, memorable and easy to follow. The rule of three is designed to help you achieve these.

Derived from writing, the rule of three supposes that events, characters, and elements of a story become more effective and engaging to your audience when done in threes. You can see the wide use of this technique from stories such as ‘The Three Musketeers’, in Steve Jobs’ 2007 iPhone presentation, and in famous slogans;
• Faster, higher, stronger (The Olympic motto)
• Liberty, equality, fraternity (French Republic)
• Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness (American Declaration of Independence)

Show no fear

To be fair, if there is something on the line, you are going to feel a bit nervous. Everyone gets nervous when the stakes are high. The thing is, your audience rarely sees the difference between fear and excitement. So, decide to be excited and use the...

Finding your voice

The easiest way to progress as a presenter is to work on your voice. You have to find your ‘presenter’s voice’ to make maximum impact. People are in fact much more sensitive to sound than they are aware of. Therefore, your job, is to create the best sound waves...
