This episode explores the "science of engagement" and answers the question, "How can we as speakers hold our listener's attention?" Omar Rivas (www.omarrivas.com) is a professional public speaking coach and engagement expert who trains CEO's and other business leaders to become better communicators. He is also contracted by the U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Army to teach chaplains and other personnel how to speak effectively. This episode is not so much about content as it is delivery. We talk about concepts such as the "angel's cocktail," the "emotion cap," "dicing the story," and "pattern interruption," all which can help our content be delivered in a creative and memorable way. Finally, because he has a passion for ministry, Omar has offered any listener complimentary feedback on their communication skills, and you can reach out to him for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org. Check out this episode and get better at engaging people!
