One liners to use for a presentation

One liners to use for a presentation

Starting off a new thread here are a couple of one liners that you could use in a presentation

“It takes 3 weeks to prepare a good off the cuff speech” – Mark Twain

Winston Churchill said that “it takes me all of 10 minutes to prepare a two-hour speech, but takes two hours to prepare a 10 minute one”

Interestingly his maiden speech took six weeks to prepare and was completely memorized.

If you see any interesting quotes add them in here.

I saw a great one liner delivered by Fons Trompenaars at the Marketing Forum.

After walking up on stage he received a polite round of applause. He replied by saying “Thank you for the applause, it is so nice to get it at the beginning – as I seldom do at the end..” The audience roared with laughter.

How about these?

> A presentation is like prospecting for oil. If you haven’t struck oil in five minutes, stop boring. – Adapted from a quote by George Jessel

> In every long presentation, there is a short one trying to get out – Adapted from a quote by Ambrose Bierce

> When dealing with people, remember you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but with creatures of emotion – Dale Carnegie

Management one liner

One of my own… Give everyone a gun, fit it with a hindsight and nothing will go wrong


One liner

“A speech should be like a woman’s dress – long enough to cover the topic, but short enough to be interesting”.

This one always gets an appreciative laugh from the males in the audience!
