Our Gauteng Chapter meeting for March promises to be brilliant. Our speakers will be Jeremy Nicholas & Dr James Robertson
Jeremy Nicholas is a writer and broadcaster from London who’s a Fellow of the Professional Speaking Association.
His talk for the Gauteng PSASA chapter is Twenty Ways To Make Your Talk Entertaining. The BBC philosophy is to ‘inform, educate and entertain’ and Jem is on a mission to make sure professional speakers don’t neglect the ‘entertain’ bit.
He’s a regular visitor to SA and the last time Jem spoke at a PSASA event was the 2010 convention at Emperor’s Palace, where he caused a stir by splitting the seat of his trousers onstage. As his talk was about using humour, the audience thought it was part of the act. It wasn’t.
He’s a familiar face on BBC TV in the UK and a familiar voice across the world as he features on the best- selling video game FIFA 13 and its predecessors back to FIFA 06. For his sins, he’s also the stadium announcer at a top London Premier League football team. (Well actually it’s West Ham!)
He commentated on the London 2012 Paralympic Games for global television. If you watched Oscar Pistorius in the athletics, it was Jeremy’s voice you heard every night on SuperSport TV and Al Jazeera.
