Phil Waknell shows how good speakers could engage their audience by triggering their curiosity.
The first task of every speaker is to get the attention of the audience so as to make sure they’re listening. That way they will learn and remember. Curiosity is the prerequisite for people to grasp knowledge and enjoy things that we’re doing. Making people feel curious by touching their emotions is the key task that will engage every audience. Make them sad, or happy or surprised or angry - as long as you don’t make them bored, you’re doing your job right. Because there’s only one force in the world which is more powerful than a brilliant idea is to bring it brilliantly to a curious audience.
“Curiosity is the thing that keeps us going and keep us growing”
“If you want to plant a tree, you first have to dig a hole, if you want to plant a message you have to dig a hole in the minds to make people curious”
