My great speech coach Ron Arden who had enjoyed a successful acting and directly career always told his students “Public speakers need variety in their presentation just as we do in the theatre. The enemy of the speaker is sameness.”

My World Champions Edge buddy Ed Tate sent this review to me from a TV blog. Sameness does not work in singing and TV.

“This week, the top 8 performed songs from the 1980s. And, unlike in weeks past, there was a clear division of talent. Some people were amazing. Some failed to live up to ghosts of performances past. And some contestants sounded just too much like previous performances. Phillip Phillips is becoming a notable offender of sounds-the-same syndrome. The big question on this night is: Who will go home? Or will the judges use the Save? I think the real problem at hand is that no one sang a Hall and Oates song. Maybe they’re saving that for an entire Hall and Oates-themed week! In my dreams.”

Perhaps you need variety in your life, relationships and hobbies?
For something totally different on April 18, my birthday, after attending the Golden Gate Breakfast Club, my pals and I are going to Alcatraz. I don’t know about you, but I love being a tourist in my own home town.

If you are a public speaker every experience is content for a speech.
Then of course you need to learn to masterfully tell your story.
In that case you can benefit from Darren LaCroix and Patricia Fripp’sStructure and Story and Coaching Champ Camp in Las Vegas in June.
