Sounds interesting. I wonder how he defines success? Guess I’ll have to read to find out.
Does Simon use you as a case study – a successful one of course!

Comment on Repetition, repetition, repetition by rileycreatop http://benjaminchong.com/2009/09/15/repetition-repetition-repetition/#comment-16 Mon, 30 Nov 2009 00:33:06 +0000 http://benjaminchong.com/?p=93#comment-16 I do agree repetition is important to get your message across. This information is very useful:

Step 1

Use similar words to describe different points. If you have multiple points, tie the ideas together by using the same wording.

Step 2

Repeat your main ideas throughout the speech. People have a limited attention span and they need reminding of the concepts you’re presenting.

Step 3

Remind the audience of your main idea, especially if you plan to introduce new concepts during the speech. Describe the new concepts by explaining how they relate to the main idea.

Step 4

Refer to the same ideas in the same way each time. If you tell the audience that the rainforests were first found by Dr. Alan Baker, continue to refer to him as Dr. Alan Baker so they will remember his name.

This happened during the Festival of Sydney earlier this year. There was a piano near my bus stop at Wynyard but as I am usually in a rush to get into the office, I never had the chance to play it…
