Why Seinfeld is a source of inspiration in my career as a speaker

Jerry Seinfeld inspires me to be a better speaker.

As a speaker, many may be surprised to learn that my favorite conferences to attend aren’t conferences at all. For me, my favorite source of inspiration to become a better speaker is a good comedy show!

Now, we all know I’m not a comedian, although I do try to infuse my business keynotes with a little humor to keep the audience entertained. So how do comedy shows help me improve my presentation as a speaker?

It’s simple. I’ll use one of my all-time favorite comedians, whom I recently went to see while in Las Vegas for a speaking event, as an example: Jerry Seinfeld.

In today’s video, I explain in more detail all of the amazing things he has taught me over the years of being a fan.

In short, he is living proof that practice makes perfect. Every word, pause, tone of speech or movement while on stage is intentional and practiced to perfection. The result is a commanding stage presence that appears casual and effortless! I’m always left in awe after seeing him live and full of new ideas to work into my own presentations.
