Outrageous. Hilarious. Provocative. Witty. Challenging. Original. That's how audiences describe Silver Donald Cameron as a speaker.
“As a speaker, you've got to be entertaining,” Silver Donald nods. “Don't bore the audience! That's the first thing. But you're also there to get the blood flowing in their brains.
“They've come to a conference to explore ideas, to learn things, to get a feel for the stuff that life is going to throw at them next. Whether it's the economy, the environment, the labour market – everything's changing, it's a volatile world.
“So you've got to shake your audience out of their routine concerns and get them to be really present at the meeting or the conference, ready to engage with the topics they've come to discuss. Shake 'em up. Make 'em laugh. Shock them. Do whatever you can to open their minds so that fresh thoughts and concepts can get in.”
