Presentation Skills - No Joking Matter
Presentation Skills training during your professional career should have included a lesson about telling jokes in a presentation. That lesson should have been, "Don't tell jokes!" Unless you are performing as a stand-up comic in a comedy club, your presentation should not start with or include a joke. All of you have humorous stories to tell. Make a deposit from your memory banks and invest in a good story rather than a joke to add zest to your presentations.
