A talk or presentation is an opportunity to be generous

Edited excerpt from Seven Secrets for Public Speaking Success by Dr. Nick Morgan:

Indulge in some generosity. Compliment your rival. Give something away. Offer free help. Share the spotlight with an audience member. Give credit to others. There are many ways to be generous from the stage, and few speakers remember to be as generous as they can be as often as they should. You are the hero of the hour, but heroes play nicely with others. It’s part of how we define them.
