The AFTER-Duction: Write. . .

Updated: Apr 4

Your Own!


The Emcee’s last words are often Underwhelming. .. “Thanks for coming. Have a safe drive home.”

That can be improved!

AFTER Your Closing Have an AFTER-Duction.

The AFTER-Duction Should be an Integral Part of Your Presentation

The AFTER-Duction Is delivered by the Emcee.

The AFTER-Duction Is the Speaker’s Responsibility to write.

  1. The AFTER-Duction Serves Several Purposes.

  2. THANK the Speaker!

  3. REINFORCE Something of Value in their message.

  4.  “One of my Take-Aways is. . .”

  5. HELP Where Appropriate, Speaker Sell Products and Services.

  6. CDs

  7. Books

  8. Coaching

  9. The Verbiage could be:

  10. “I suggest checking out the books and CDs he has made available.”

  11. “If you ask nicely, I’ll bet he’ll be glad to autograph them for you!”

  12. “Don’t forget to give him your business card for his Free ________.”

Those AFTER-Duction Statements Are Best Coming from the Emcee Vs. the Speaker.

SPEAKING Opportunities are Business, Career, and Leadership Opportunities!” - Fred E. Miller Being the Master of Ceremonies is a “SPEAKING Opportunity!”
