How can you create a great speech that asks you to use visual aids, without resorting to ‘death by Powerpoint’?
That would be ‘Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezy’, if Jessie Barstow’s speech was anything to go by. We all looked extremely curious as Jessie walked into the room with a veggie box full of lemons, oranges, glass jars and some other items we couldn’t quite fathom from where we were sat. Very interesting.
She walked to the front of the room and proceeded to organise herself for her speech. She set up a table and took out a chopping board, a knife and a lemon as well as an empty jar. Was she preparing for Masterchef?
Jessie’s speech ‘Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezy’, was about the benefits of producing your own cleaning products and she showed us what we needed to do. She presented us with information that was clear and entertaining. She took a plastic glass and put a big chunk of lemon in it – what now we thought? She explained that this next component was essential when using lemons. She poured herself a Gin and Tonic out of a can – hilarious. Who couldn’t agree.
I loved this speech by Jessie. It was very entertaining and she used out of the veggie box thinking to deliver a great speech, and to show that you can use great visual aids without resorting to death by Powerpoint.
