Thought for today:
‘The right word may be effective, but no word was ever as effective as a rightly timed pause.’
— Mark Twain

In my presentation and storytelling workshops, teaching pauses is often the most challenging part. In regular speech a pause gives the listener’s brain the chance to catch up with you or highlights something worth thinking a bit harder about. As a therapist, I can pause for minutes at a time, it is interesting what happens next. How do you use pauses?
