The forty members and friends who attended the February 19, 2014 Cape Cod Writers Center’s Writers Night Out received a surprise Valentine gift from presentation coach, C.L. Fornari — an exciting and informative lesson about how to win over an audience when presenting on their books.
As usual the evening began with cocktails and a buffet dinner at Uno’s Chicago Grille on Route 132 in Hyannis and a chance to network with members and guests.
Then C. L. Fornari took the floor and explained the tricks and tips successful speakers employ to charm and inspire their audiences. Among her tips: know your audience, tell them a little about yourself or the backstory of your book, include interesting stories and above all — be yourself, a presentor who has practised so well that he/she feels confident and relaxed.
With our appreciation C.L., for your invaluable advice!
