I have several speaking engagements where I’ve presented more than once. I want to make it worth while for other people to come back, so I create new programs. I consider these try outs. Programs that work well with the audience I keep in the collection. Programs that don’t get cut and are never heard from again. For instance, I cut and dropped Laura’s ghost at Rocky Ridge because despite the fact I really loved it, the set up was too confusing to the audience.
Over time, I’ve gotten quite a list built up. Sometimes people aren’t sure what would be the best program for them to have. I’m going to begin a series once a month posts of describing one of my programs so you can tell which one is right for you. Will your favorite be up next?
