Gov. Chris Christie is fast becoming a star in US politics because of his direct, honest and sometimes argumentative style. Having recently followed the British General Election, an election where not one politician could give a straight answer to a straight question, watching and listening to Chris Christie explaining to a journalist why he is sometimes ‘confrontational’ is refreshing and enjoyable to watch.
As presenters, we too often worry about our “Style” and the way we ‘sound’. But as Chris Christie says:
I could say it really nicely. I could say it in a way you all might feel more comfortable with … but the fact of the matter is; this is who I am, and this is who the people elected
And that is something that we, as presenters, must remember. Be yourself, let your personality and character come out in your presentations and stop worrying about ‘style’.
