Video: KISS: Keep It Short and Simple

One of the key concepts in effective speaking is actually really easy to remember: KISS. Which of course stands for, Keep It Short and Simple. That refers to everything that you do but more especially, the language that you use. Don’t use long sentences that start well but then you haven’t really thought about what you’re going to say, so it tends to go on whilst you’re trying to think about what is the message that you would like to convey to the person you’re talking to and not really think about what messages are in fact important to them. Use short sentences, your intonation will be more evident and you will create more impact. Remember, people don’t listen very well, so say more by saying less: KISS.
