Some key take-aways, one from each speaker...
Stand Your Ground - Jayne discussed NOT wandering around the stage... move with PURPOSE. Create a presence when you're speaking. Stand your ground... and embrace everything about YOU, including your accent. Be yourself, and be proud of it.
Use Rhetorical Questions - Peter explained how to use rhetorical questions to get people thinking. "If someone proposed putting a pipeline beneath a military graveyard, most people would oppose that strongly. Now think about what a pipeline below an Indian sacred ground... how is that different?"
Use Story-telling - Ken shared how stories enliven the conversation and create connections with the audience. International and cross-cultural audiences can connect on many of the same basic ideas - family, achievement and success, personal well-being and other fundamental human values.
