Tom Antion: Now I Lay Me Down . . . To Talk

If you want to create some extra impact when public speaking, don't be afraid to present in some odd postures. My friend Ron Culbertson starts his talk while standing on a table. Another friend of mine Barbara Sanfilippo climbs a ladderwhile on stage. Zig Zigler kneels.

I do a signature story while sitting on a chair and I have sprawled myself across a table to make a point. I have seen speakers doing handstands, backflips, riding a bicycle and standing on their head. Of course, I wouldn't do the whole talk standing on my head, but who knows. . . I might look better that way. hahahaha
