UGANDA: Silence is consent – MLK
Ugandans need the Shock Element.
One of my managers sent me on a one week Presentation Course.
The Instructor kept going at us like “How do you get attention from the audience in your first 2-5 seconds when you are presenting”?
He assigned each student a different topic to present. He was video recording every student. Just so he could discuss with you your own presentation.
Speech / Voice
Fashion (the suit you were wearing).
He assigned me “Martha, you are going to make a pitch to get a consulting contract for this company which is about to file for Bankruptcy. You want to tell the employees that if they don’t roll up their sleeves, their jobs are gone”.
MLN: “Hey people, we are all gonna lose our jobs in 3mths. UNLESS we roll up our sleeves.
Show up on time for work. Stop calling in sick when you are not sick. Management is not your enemy. This company is losing a lot of money because we do not care about the jobs we do. If you don’t like it here, resign tomorrow. We are bleeding”.
However later, when the Instructor and I were reviewing the video of my presentation, he still found fault.
“Martha, I liked it. But you spoke in a very low gentle voice. RAISE up the volume when you know you are speaking about a topic you are passionate about. The truth is people will lose their jobs if they do a shody job”.
