Overcome Public Speaking Anxiety With These Simple Techniques

 In Branding, Entertainment, mindset

Public speaking is one of the most common fears. 

Great public speaking skills take time and effort to develop. Practice and preparation are important. And so is your body language and connection with the audience.

So how do you nail your next presentation, toast, or speech?

How are your presentation skills?

Prepare Like Your Life Depended On It

Rehearse your speech as often as possible. Write down your speech and rehearse it until you have it memorized. You will notice that in practicing your speech aloud, you will start editing words that are unnecessary.

You do not have to regurgitate your speech from memory. However, memorizing it offers you several benefits. You can ad-lib and read the crowd on the day to adjust your speech on stage. The preparation boosts your confidence and ensures that you do not forget important details. 

Rehearsing your speech in front of your friends will also expose any flaws in your argument.

Treat Public Speaking As An Opportunity To Connect With People

Avoid using visual aids and presentations. Connect with your audience.

Using a screen takes the attention off you (the speaker). That might sound like a good idea to ease your nerves, but it cuts the connection with your audience.

Tell stories and share personal experiences to convey your point. Stories have a far greater impact than data presented on slides. Research shows that speakers who smiled were perceived as more intelligent by audiences. Make eye contact and smile at the faces looking at you.

Finally, make sure your body language and physical presence convey confidence.
