Observations from "The How of Wow" - Opening Keynote

Observations from The How of Wow by Tony Carlson:

* According to Carlson only 1 in 500 speeches is good enough to be remembered. To be among those remembered, Carlson says you need to give audiences insight, enlightenment, meaning, stimulation, wit, and entertainment.

* Few speakers ever rehearse enough. Every extra moment you have ought to go into rehearsing.

* Your opening line can be a shocker that lets the audience know you mean business. Don't be afraid to say something that people already suspect, but no one will say except for you.

* Show your vulnerability early in the speech.
