Using Your Slide as a Punch Line - Adding Humor to Your Speech


Slides are some of the most misused valuable real estate you own as a speaker. There's a lot to that statement. I'll do a whole other video on slides and why they should never be covered in stats or re-iterating what it is you've already said.

In the video above, I have a small segment in one of my speeches where I make fun of slides. In other words, the slide becomes my punch line.

The reason it works is it is completely unexpected for the audience. 

You will notice me looking a little too much at the remote. There was a slight delay and some issues with connectivity in the ballroom between their laptop and the remote and the screen. This is nothing unusual and you should always be prepared for anything technical to not run smoothly.

I encourage you to re-think what's possible when it comes to your slides.

Do Your Slides in Your Presentation Look Like This Photo?

Uncategorized Apr 19, 2024

Do the slides in your presentation look like the first photo??

In the world according to Stacy, you are missing out on incredibly VALUABLE real estate when it comes to having your audience understand and retain what you are sharing.

Slides can help reach your visual learners in a way no other part of your speech can. When they walk away, they may not remember the stats you shared on your slide. However, your visual learners can walk away with an image representing your point burned into their brain.

Pictures also trigger an emotion which also helps seal your message. I can share with you the stats of how over 80% of workers are burned out, unengaged or feel like they are in survival mode. OR, I can share the second image. Which slide will impact your audience more? (Rhetorical question…The second is an actual slide of mine, btw.)

If your slides are littered with bullet points, re-iterate what you are already sharing, of are filled with graphs and stats, you may want to...

Speaking is NOT About Delivering Information

Speaking is NOT about standing in front and providing a bunch of information. People don’t remember information.

 If I asked you to name what you learned in 3rd grade about American History, many of you won’t remember a single piece of information.

 If I asked you to share what the bully on the playground said to you that year, you probably remember it down to exact way he or she said it.

 Why? People don’t retain information strictly from facts. People retain information depending on the feeling attached.

 This is why creativity – the use of humor, visuals, stories, etc., are so important in your talk. Creativity sparks emotion.

 I like to think of creativity as a cake. The layers of the cake are your content. The frosting is creativity. It is what ties your talk together and makes it fun, enticing, and memorable.


Most of us don’t want to eat an entire cake of frosting (unless it’s buttercream…then...

Elephant in the room: OBVIOUSLY NOT shot at the same time as the thumbnail photo was taken. The thumbnail makes it look like a 5 star restaurant, but then when you open it and it's just ramen.
