Public Speaking in Hawaii

I got my start with public speaking in San Francisco back in the late ’70s. My audiences were comprised of people who were excited about the personal development workshop (named “Actualizations”) that they had just taken.

When I moved to Honolulu in 1980 and sought speaking engagements here, I was told that audiences here tend to be reserved. I should not be surprised if it was difficult to involve them. “Oh? That wouldn’t be much fun,” I thought.

Sure enough, it seemed to be true. And sure enough, it wasn’t much fun. (I felt so alone! And so drained, at the end of it.) Public speaking in Hawaii wasn’t as much fun as it was in San Francisco!

That’s why I had to find a way to involve my audience. Over time, I discovered that through the deliberate and strategic use of questions — safe questions and clear questions — I could get my audience involved.
