Right now I am sitting in the Atlanta airport waiting for my flight to Indiana and the 2012 NSA Conference.  Of course, that is the National Speakers Association – they actually have an association for us people who simply just talk too much. Now if I listen to my friends and family, I may just walk away with the award for that one. But if they classify it by who uses the most words, or who speaks the fastest, then I am afraid I would lose.  If they had a category for who makes the least sense, or speaks incorrectly, then I’d have it hands down.

I expect I will meet a lot of great people.  Most likely I will know a few of them as well.  Along with speaking too much, I pride myself on listening to people who talk too much.  By the way, speakers are set up to give you little tidbits you can take away and use when you need them . . . and I just gave you one right there.  Listening is the key to a good conversation, and to have a good relationship as well.  There is your tip, I’ll send you my bill.

There are hundreds, maybe thousands of speakers across the US and abroad.  But really, only a handful of topics; you know, like productivity, sales, marketing, teamwork.   These are topics folks in business hear about all the time. Companies spends millions of dollars every year to get us speakers to come in and remind workers that you could communicate a little clearer, sell a little more, and manage your time a little better. The message doesn’t really change, but it’s the speaker’s job to make you believe that you are hearing it for the first time.

Our world is filled with folks who voice their opinions in radio, TV, newspapers, blogs, and in the comment section below Internet articles.  There is never a shortage of folks who will stand up for hours spouting out their opinions, most of you don’t even need to pay, matter of fact, they might pay you for the chance to speak. Our country right now is faced with politicians that have a lot to say. Most of which makes little sense and changes like the wind. Maybe we should make it mandatory that if you speak to a crowd you have to promise to abide by a few rules (at least here in the USA): speak all truth and no hate and leave the crowd with something they can take away to actually use.

Remember the old saying: if you don’t have anything good to say, then don’t say it at all?  If we stuck politicians to that, boy, political speeches might look like a game of Charades.

I have always said that all you need to do when speaking in a crowd is to get one person to agree with you and you go from being a person with an opinion to a people with a passion. That’s what happens when you speak out loud, just try it. Just make sure you follow the rules.
