- About Us
Not all of us are fond of public speaking, and could be really fearsome for most people, but whether we like it or not, we may be forced to do it one way or another. So it is then best if we try to learn the skill so that when the time comes for us to make a speech in public, it will not be a dreadful activity anymore.
There are two ways to make it not look so fearful, and these are constant practice until you get it and until you get used to it and the other one is simply to be comfortable with it.
When speaking in public, it is important that you know your subject well so that it will be easy for you to discuss and at the same time, you will also be comfortable when you know what you are talking about. It is also necessary that you know your audience and it is better if you have an idea of their level of knowledge about the topic so that you can also be guided which ideas are good to share with them. It is always nice if you can share something that is informative and a bit familiar so your audience can relate.
Decide on what you want to achieve in your speech. Do you want to instruct, stimulate, persuade or explore? Use your materials well by keeping it organized. Have a pattern and use only what is necessary for your audience so it is best if you have some note cards to guide you.
Have your own style of delivery and use personal terms to connect with your audience. Do not worry about humor because it will come out naturally, and do not fret too much because success does not happen overnight.
