Don’t Speak Like a Zebra
It seems that the stripes actually make it harder for flies to bite.
On one hand, this is a certainly good reminder NOT to wear bright stripes on stage or in front of the camera.
But there is also an important lesson here about content. When you try to say two things at once or when your speech is “striped,” your presentation may be distracting to the listener, much in the way that the stripes are distracting to the flies.
From the Green Room: Keep your content solid, not striped. Chose one powerful message, and let the rest of your content flow from it.
