Blasphemy

I have found that audiences are far better served with provocation and by challenging them with new ideas than they are with commiseration, pandering, and “comfort food” (which many presentations resemble). Of course, the speaker must be oriented toward helping others and not self-adulation.

If you’re receiving 10s on feedback sheets and standing ovations at every presentation, the odds are that you’re simply not doing a very good job improving others’ lives.
