You may have never heard of Ken Eder and now you have. May I recommend that you take some time to know this individual, in my books it is well worth knowing this persona.
Ken's name suddenly came rushing back into my memory.

My upbringing is a simple one and I am extremely grateful to my parents for that.
President Barack Obama is a great example of showing how to practically use the “Power of Three".
With the use of “Power of Three”, he has the amazing ability that allows the listener to see, feel and hear the passion and authenticity in what he does.
Virtually all presentations and conversations require us to explain. We may need to describe a process, justify an action or cost, or simply share an idea.
Do you ever feel challenged getting others to understand or care about something they haven’t experienced?
When you’re preparing for an important conversation, do you put as much thought into when and where it will take place as you do into what you’re going to say?
No matter how well you plan your words, if the time and place aren’t right, your conversation will not succeed.
When someone is talking to you, do you spend more time thinking about how you're going to respond, or what they really feel, mean and want?
If you’re like most people, you spend more than twice as much energy planning your response.
I have been teaching presentation skills for years. What I notice time and time again is this:
Speakers dread pauses.
Audiences love pauses.
Why Do Speakers Dread Pauses?
Often, it’s because they feel that if they pause, they will seem boring.
Imagine, you're in a meeting. You've got an insight to share. You wait for the right moment: maybe a pause in the conversation. You listen carefully as others exchange ideas back and forth. Finally, the right moment comes! You lean forward and open your mouth... and then you close it.
