Imagine you had to pay a dollar every time you used a filler word. Would you still use them so casually or employ all your might in a desperate attempt to resist using even a single of them. Most would resist. Here’s a small secret – every time you use filler words, it actually costs you more than a dollar. It costs you your credibility, eloquence and your audience’s attention. And that’s three fantastic reasons to not use any of them.

To help you in this endeavour, I am playing the role of Ah Counter today. As the Ah Counter, my role is to keep a track of all the filler words such as ah, umm, err, you know etc. used by the speakers today so that you may work on them. I will make a note of them and present my report towards the end of the meeting.
