A business keynote speaker suggests that presentation is just as important as the content of your speech. Being an effective speaker isn’t just about having a good message, you must entertain your listeners. Public speaking does not have an impact if you cannot sway the feelings of the crowd. Saying paragraphs of words is not enough to provoke a thought or trigger an emotional reaction. If your point is heard but not felt, then you have failed in your mission. Here are suggestions on how to make your speech a success:
Make the Crowd Like you
This could be done in a number of ways. If you’re in a state or city with a sports team, wear the team’s jersey. Crack a few jokes at the beginning of your show. Be polite in how you speak. Generally know your audience and do what they like. The more they like you, the more willing they are to listen and agree with you.
Make the Crowd Notice You
Set yourself apart from other public speakers. Even if they like you, your message will only last as long as they remember you. You must change what they think about you from “another public speaker” to “that great public speaker.” Be eye catching and energetic, someone that gave them a great time for a few hours.
Make the Crowd Feel What You Say
Associate your presentation with an emotion or feeling so that whenever they feel that way again, they’ll remember what you said. The utmost mission of a public speaker is to leave a lasting impression on their audience. They came to change their lives a little bit, change their perspectives even an inch.
Being the crowd favorite is not an easy job and it won’t always happen. It’s all right if you didn’t connect with them as much as you hoped to, putting the effort to try makes all the difference in the impact of what you had to say. Try the business keynote speaker’s suggestions and bond with your listeners on a higher level.
