NSA-NT February 2017 Meeting – John Molidor, PHD

Program

Title: Credibility Is King and Queen: Is Your Content Google-Proof?

Description: 

Have you ever wondered about some of the ’stuff’ you say in your presentations? Such as, “Do I know where that information came from or am I just putting my spin on something I heard before? Is there any factual basis for what I share? Did I imagine this material or do I just say things because it sounds right (and sometimes, even sexy)? What will I do if someone challenges me on my material?”

Nowadays, it is pretty easy to fact-check your ’stuff’ and your ‘material’ so it behooves you to make sure that what you say is ‘Google-Proof.’ But, as you also know, Google is not the definitive authority on what is true and what isn’t! So what can you do?

As the field of speaking continues to mature as a profession, it is necessary that we, as professional speakers, ensure that what we are sharing and telling our audiences is grounded in truth. It can be your truth (based on your experiences) and/or it can be supported by research (based on actual experiments). Both ways work, but we need to be careful when we cross the line from experiential to experimental.

So come join us as we explore some of the speaking content myths that are out there (which you might be telling your audiences) and examine some methods to ‘Google-Proof’ your content.

About the Featured Speaker

Dr. John B. Molidor comes to us from the Great Lakes State of Michigan, where he is the President for the National Speakers Association-US.
