Ghost story pro Alasdair Stuart believes there are 4 tricks for capturing the attention of your audience. You have to take control of your environment, audience, story and yourself. A great article in The Guardian reveals his favorite nuances like using a single light source and seating your audience in a wedge than fans out from the speaker. He also explains that a pretense of truth is essential and that it’s helpful to use a repetitive, memorable phrase. Check out the story for yourself and see if you can incorporate his techniques into your next pitch – or at least tell a great Halloween ghost story this season!
