When you want to be a professional speaker there are some things that you should not do. In the beginning of your speech, you should not start on a weak note. The beginning needs to be interesting in order for you to capture the audience from the start. This way, they are more likely to listen to the rest of the talk and will stay interested.
Imitating Other Speakers
Don’t try to imitate the way other speakers speak. You are unique and you should have your own way of delivering a speech. Imitating can put the audience off. Don’t read a speech word for word. It is wise to write keywords down and expand on them. That is why it is imperative to know the material you are talking about. Don’t let nerves get the better of you. Try to relax as much as possible and use breathing techniques if they are helpful. When you are nervous, the audience can detect it and this can decrease the chances of them taking you seriously.
Don’t speak without being prepared. For a professional speaker, preparation is the key to executing a speech. It can be embarrassing to address the audience with information that is not well researched and said in a strategic and unique manner.
These are just a few things that a professional speaker should not do in order to get, and remain successful.
