Create a “Bubble” for Great Business Presentations
When my good friend, Eric Edmeades, and I were at the recent Transformational Leadership Council meeting, we talked about his upcoming book, “Unforgettable”, and the power of giving great presentations. I asked him to share his thoughts on what it takes to make a great speech, and he talked about creating a bubble for the audience. You do this by taking people on an adventure, rather than just telling a story.
Learn how to create the bubble, and how to avoid breaking the bubble in this short video.
I think Eric’s tips are helpful for all professionals who give business presentations, whether someone is an experienced presenter, or it’s their first time in front of an audience. I’d like to hear your thoughts; please leave a comment below.

Good stuff here! Thanks! It takes practice and experience to be able to wing it smoothly when something unexpected happens, but you gotta roll with the punches and land on your feet, like a cat. The more you do it, the better you get.
This is a similar to a novel-writing technique I just read in a blog post this morning – to hook the reader in the first few paragraphs, set up the environment – your “bubble” – by introducing the main character (MC); establishing (subtly) the MC’s challenge to immediately evoke tension; and the tone or “voice” of the story, like body language (humorous for a light rom-com, or dark and gritty for a thriller-chiller).
