Grooming Talk For Cycle & Carriage Fulco Motor Dealer
Much as our lives revolve a lot around technology such as our mobile phones, the internet and television, so too does the life of a trainer depend on the trustworthy laptop and projector most of the times.
But things don’t always go the way you want it, even though you may wish it to be. This happened today during the lunchtime grooming talk at Fulco Motor Dealer. The projector decided to take a break and the laptop went on a random on-off mode. Was I perturbed? Maybe a little. But I’m never one to give up that easily. The show must go on. Even without technology’s assistance, I can still rely on myself to deliver the goods…which I did.
It may be a daunting experience for a new trainer but as I have clocked hundreds of speaking hours, speaking off the cuff and naturally (without following the prescribed flow of the slides) meant thinking on my feet, interacting more with the audience and bringing them to me. I knew my materials inside out so it didn’t prove to be a daunting task. It’s always my belief that when you can only share with passion when you are speaking on topics you really feel a lot for. And I’m glad this conviction of mine was put to good use today. Whether it is speaking off the cuff, or attempting to see car to a prospect, one always maintains a positive first impression so that the battle is half won. Imagine a car sales person who looks sloppy in his dressing or does not know his products well…it certainly doesn’t augur well. Similarly, create a facade of me at a loss of words just because technology broke down…Well, this will never happen! LOL
