One Secret to Teaching The Same Material Repeatedly
I recently watched a vendor give a presentation, and was very impressed with his delivery style and energy. It was clear that he’d given this presentation many times, but it seemed fresh. Afterwards I asked him how he was able to present the same information over and over again. “It’s not about the material,” he said. “I focus on the fact that I have a new audience.”
If you’re teaching something that you’ve taught before – even many times – there’s a tremendous insight there for you: focus on the new group of people.
