Examples are the best way to demonstrate any concept. TM Oliver from New York has done just that – an example to show the negative effects filler words may have on your speech. Read his submission below.
RELATED: How to do the role of Ah Counter?
On a scale of 1 to 10, how confident would you rate a salesman who said “err our product is really good you know, trust me.” Not very high would you? When you are on stage, you are selling something as well. May be not a product but your ideas and like the salesman, use of crutch words may dilute the confidence your audience has on you. It is therefore important that we refrain from using them while speaking. Good for you, am here to help.
As the Ah Counter today, I will help you in getting rid of your crutch words. I will make a note of all the crutch words used by speakers and role players in the meeting today and present my report in the evaluation session.
Thank you so much TM Oliver for this delightful submission.
