How to Bore your Audience

This is a sequel to my earlier article "How to Glue Your Audience" and a spoofy take at that. Reader discretion is advised :)

How many times have you sat in a conference or a meeting and gauged a speaker in less than a minute? How many times have you switched off and decided that a visit to the washroom or checking your messages would be a better use of your time rather than listening to this boring speaker in front of you?

And have you ever been that speaker whose audience is either looking down at their phones or are staring at you with a vacant disengaged expression that makes you question your own right to be taking center stage? was it due to lack of presentation skills & public speak skills?

I suppose we have all been on either side.

Here's what you must do if you want to bore your audience to sleep.
