Professional Speaker Reveals Key to Successful Public Speaking

 

Professional speakers always get to know their equipment before giving a speech

Ever find it difficult to engage an audience with your speech? Do you feel like your talks are missing that certain something? Professional speakers swear by the following pieces of advice:

  • Take care of your appearance. Not only will people be more willing to trust someone who looks well turned out and professional, but it will make you feel more relaxed and confident.
  • Become familiar with your surroundings. Take a look at the venue of your speech, get to know how the overhead display, computer hook-ups and sound system works (if you will be using these) and anything else to prevent unexpected events!
  • Know what you’re talking about and practice it! Do your research and know exactly what you are going to say. Being prepared is the best way to feel relaxed and confident.
  • Know your audience. Target your speech correctly, know when using humor is appropriate or when a more serious approach is required. Correct targeting will mean that your audience will respond better to what you say.
  • Pace yourself. Take a deep breath and go slowly. There is no such thing as too slowly! Everyone suffers from fast-talking when it comes to public speaking so just take it easy.
  • Make eye contact. Looking at the floor is a no go and whilst occasionally glancing at notes is fine, it should be avoided for an extended periods. People trust people who look them in the eye, so go for it!

Leadership Speakers Speak Out About Leading the Rest

Here are some thoughts from leadership speakers as they talk about being a leader.

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Well Being, and Peak Human Performance.

It seems that more and more people want to be leadership speakers. This can only be achieved if they are leaders. Since leading people is not an easy task, there are a few things that leaders can do.

Don’t Look Back

Some leaders have the tendency of trying to use the methods of the past that made them successful and use them in the future. In this ever-changing world, a leadership speaker needs to be constantly innovative and changing with the times. It’s good to have a team of enthusiastic and creative people who can always push the company forward.

Be Open to Other People’s Ideas

As a leader, you might find that you think you know it all; but you don’t. Listening and getting ideas from other people will help increase productivity in the workplace as well as other areas. When you listen to the people you lead; they feel like they are part of a team and are more likely to come up with interesting ideas. Don’t lose your passion. It can be easy to be fired up one day and then deflated the next. Try to work with people who have internalized your vision. They should be able to fuel you up when you are down.

Overall being a leadership speaker takes a lot of practice and hard work.

Speaking Tips from a Motivational Keynote Speaker

Speaking in front of people

Speaking in front of people as a motivational keynote speaker is something that you get good at over time. Whether you have the calling or not, you don’t become a great speaker overnight.

Do Not Make the Same Mistake

Speaking in front of people as a motivational keynote speaker is something that you don’t get good at over night. Whether you have the calling or not, you don’t become a great speaker overnight. However, when you speak in front of people and make mistakes, learn from them. There is nothing as demoralizing as knowing that you do the same mistake over and over. Learn from your mistake and move on, that is the key to growing as a speaker.

Take Advantage of Small Gatherings

The amount of exposure that you get, even from a small group of people, can go a long way. Most people think it’s about the size of the crowd, but it’s rather all about your ability to interpret facial expressions, captivate them, and turn them towards what you want to put across. A motivational keynote speaker says that for example, you should practice talking to a stiff audience and try changing the mood. This technique is the difference between great speakers and the rest.

What you need to know as a speaker is that you are communicating, and if you didn’t know, people are doing you a favor listening to you, so you owe them in fact, not the other way round. Motivational keynote speaker Andy Core, therefore concludes that you should make it a point that whatever you say and do in front of people, it will leave them changed.
