From my favorite Ginger on #gingerthursday  

Audience satisfaction used to be a good thing. A good rating used to be enough but with the current “wow factor” of TED Talks, these days “good” is another name for “meh”/okay/mediocre/bare minimum. The stakes continue to rise with every amazing speaker upping the ante.

What your audience is truly looking for is a superhero — specifically for you to be their superhero. To save them from evils they weren’t even aware of and give them the tools they didn’t even know they needed.

The best speakers often use stories as a powerful tool for demonstrating and bringing to life a key message. It’s one of the best ways to be memorable. And a really juicy story will keep the audience on the edge of their seats… quite literally. 

So what’s the secret to telling great stories to use in public speaking?

You have a message of change that’s deeply important to you. Right? You want to speak it out in public. You want to share this message, but it makes you nervous. 

How do you find enough confidence in your message of change to share it with others? Let’s investigate the key part of you that will help you speak your message of change…  http://www.gingerpublicspeaking.com/message-change___I like butterflies.

Ant-Man was AMAZE! Truly I was a bit skeptical but Marvel did it... they caught the campy fun side of this comic and served it up with wry grins and jokes that actually worked! But when it was time for Ant-Man to suit up... he was all business and kicked serious ass. 

I doubt I'll be able to step on another ant ever again.

Check out these upcoming amazing TEDTalks! It's all about girl power! 

It was an honor and a privilege for us at Ginger to coach the 2015 TEDx CoventGardenWomen event! Now you can relive the momentum from this night with amazing speakers' talks available online. Ginger's very own Marianna Fox and Lou Lebentz were outstanding! 

It's incredible to see how well these passionate ladies (and one man) did, even when facing lots of personal nerves. They nailed it - it was an incredible event!

Ground control to Major... BooBoo.

Due to my 10 year old's love of space and everything in it AND her excitement over the #PlutoFlyby ... she requested an outer space party! We have blacked out the living room the Nebula Galaxy complete with a space constellation toy stars and a cardboard aluminium foil space capsule with a full homemade control panel.

Seriously... I love this kid. All science... All day. My kind of birthday.

A day and half without power lets you know what's truly important... 

Eating a freezer full of ice cream for breakfast makes your kids sick of ice cream. 

Board games are fun... for the first six hours. 

No technology means kids are COMPLETELY present... and asking you when the technology is coming back every six... three... two seconds. 

Buying a generator most certainly means the power will come back on almost immediately. 

Kindle Paperwhites have amazing battery life... and protected my kids from certain death.

Catching bugs (especially the ones that are most likely not around - like rare African caterpillars) will keep your kids occupied for hours. 

Watching your mini ones play full contact freeze tag in the dark is hilarious. (no children were harmed... much) 

Children in awe of fireflies is a beautifulthing.... more »

Eating a freezer full of ice cream for breakfast makes your kids sick of ice cream. 

Board games are fun... for the first six hours. 

No technology means kids are COMPLETELY present... and asking you when the technology is coming back every six... three... two seconds. 

Buying a generator most certainly means the power will come back on almost immediately. 

Kindle Paperwhites have amazing battery life... and protected my kids from certain death.

Catching bugs (especially the ones that are most likely not around - like rare African caterpillars) will keep your kids occupied for hours. 

Watching your mini ones play full contact freeze tag in the dark is hilarious. (no children were harmed... much) 

Children in awe of fireflies is a beautiful thing... explaining to them exactly why we can't use them to power our house is brilliant.  

You think you're going to have some 'frisky' time in the complete darkness after your super hyper children have finally passed out... and you find you and your husband snoring almost immediately due to a three hour epic Charades battle.  

Your house filled with candlelight is a magical thing... your house filled with everyone completely PRESENT is a gift. 

We may have sporadic "power outages" every week. (except for the refrigerator and coffee pot. If I never see an ice cream sandwich again I'll be happy) ___
