Genius Technique - Split Your Story

Split your story is an advance technique in the art of public speaking. Start a story near or at the beginning of your talk, but don't finish it.

Build suspense by cutting off the story at a key point or just before the climactic finish.

This builds anticipation. Finish the story at the end of your talk.

When you use this art of public speaking genius technique skillfully, you will have every single person there at the end of your speech because they want to know what happened at the end of the story, as you weave the split parts back together.

Create a split, for positive tension, so they do not "mentally split" from your talk and daydream, or snooze. (No ZZZs allowed.)

In the art of public speaking, you want people hanging on the edge of their seats, so keep them curious.
