Public speaking is the process of speaking to a group of people in a structured manner intended to tell, persuade, or entertain the listeners. It is closely related to “presenting”. Whenever we have to get in front of an audience to speak, we usually have to go through a panic moment. Putting forth a good presentation demands a lot of courage, practice and preparation.
Every time you speak before crowd, you learn something new. With my experience as a public speaker and trainer I have several tips which would help many of you. These points would help no matter whether you are speaking at a large conference or giving an internal presentation to the co-workers.
Getting Physically & Mentally Prepared Before Your Presentation
The more you prepare, the more confident you would feel. Slowly and gradually when you become comfortable in public speaking you’ll unsurprisingly feel more confident and the need to prepare may be of lesser importance. Amateur speakers must spend more time in getting ready. But that does not mean that you make yourself go crazy. Just be comfortable with your material and keep practicing.
If you are a first time speaker, you may consult a public speaking trainer and would be of great help. They will observe your style and suggest you some advice on addressing the crowd. For example they might advice you to:
* Speak slower.
* Talk to individuals in the audience.
* Take pauses and think before you speak.
Going over them before your presentation would help you to be more composed and confident.
Some more ways to prepare yourself can be the following:
* Drinking a lot of water.
* Taking a good night’s sleep.
* Avoid drinking the night before.
* Breathe normally.
* Visualize a positive result.
* Talk to other speakers (if any). Ask them questions and for advice.
