Are you stuck dead level abstracting? Or do you offer your audiences content at multiple levels of abstraction?

As I was writing this article, a colleague suggested a follow-up article giving examples of speech props as a means to highlight the variety which is possible.

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.

Your guide to becoming a confident and effective speaker
Introduction

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.
