I’d love to hear from you. Please share memorable props that you have used, or which you have seen used by other speakers. For each, give a very brief context of how the prop enhanced the speech.
If we get enough suggestions, I’ll compile them into a future article.
I’m Andrew Dlugan, and I’m the founder of Six Minutes.
I am passionate about the power of effective communication. I have two decades of communications experience: teaching courses, delivering keynotes and seminars, coaching speakers, and emceeing events. I am an award-winning public speaker and speech evaluator. I have been a Toastmasters member since 2005; you can read more about my Toastmasters accomplishments here.
I have bachelor’s degrees in both engineering and computer science. Earlier in my career, I devoted nine years to cancer research and medical imaging. More recently, I am involved with satellite data analysis, aviation, and web technologies.
When I’m not solving engineering problems, speaking to an audience, or working on Six Minutes, I enjoy reading, traveling, photography, woodworking, and spending time with my family.
I am happily married, and we have one daughter. We live just outside Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
