Speech Tip: Watch Your Language!

If you are giving a speech and no one is listening, have you really spoken? Out there are people so excellent at what they do that they are asked to speak about their success. They get the speaking gig, then muck it up with jargon, corporate-speak and other sorts of buzzwords. They get technical. They go in too deep. And they forget their audience is tuned out. Use the parlance of your audience.

Many corporations have developed their own dialect. Many employees try to exaggerate their currency by tossing around hip business terms. Many leaders look for relevancy in lieu of communication. Currency and relevancy matters, and internal dialects have their place, but remember your goal is to bring the audience somewhere.
