Growing up I observed an interesting practice during prime time. We in parallel watched 3 channels! Usually: cricket, news, and an Ekta Kapoor serial.
We optimised TV time to suit everyone except the advertisers!
Why not use this insight in public speaking? Instead of designing smooth transitions that are limiting (and boring) jump across a broad range of topics, p.o.v’s, ideologies and leave it to us to be surprised, engaged and capable to process it.
Don’t smoothen your speech to a point that it loses its edge!
