3 Public Speaking Techniques That Will Help Build Your Confidence

Public speaking can be scary. And in the panic of planning, it’s all too easy to let fear take over and become the leading character in your speech. In this blog, you will receive 3 top tips on how to gains self-confidence and build your public speaking techniques.

1) Deliver An Authentic Story

Tell the story your way. Don’t try and be Tony Robbins is you are not that kind of personality – if you act fake, you will lose any audience, quicker than you know. You have got to keep an audience engaged for as long as it is you are talking, whether it’s five minutes or one hour. Whether it’s on stage or in a room of team members. You have got to keep people engaged and you cannot do that if you are trying to copy somebody else, so do it your way. So if you are tempted to copy somebody when public speaking… don’t! You are interesting. You are unique. You are remarkable. You have a story to tell, so go and tell it your way.

2) Understand Your Audience

If you are in marketing, you need to understand the customers you are advertising to. If you are teaching children, you need to relate to the age-group in a manner that engages their mentality. You need to understand life from the point of view of those which you address. What are their problems? What are their pain points? What are they experiencing? What are they feeling? What do they want to gain from your talk or meeting? So spend some time understanding who your audience is. Write a description of their character down. Find real people, who match that description on Facebook and Linked In – this way you can learn a little more about who they are, what they do, what kind of attention span will they have?

3) Practice, Practice, Practice!

Write out your speech. Whatever my talk is going to be, I write it longhand. What do I mean by that? I write each talk out, word for word. Now, I know I am not going to stick to the script that I write out. I don’t memorise the script. But I have learned over the years that I still need to write my talk out longhand, whilst I am preparing. Read your speech aloud. Once I have written my speech out longhand, then I need to read it aloud. I do this because how your talk sounds is very different in comparison to how it sounds in your head. You read it aloud, and then you edit your talk. I would do that probably three, four or five times. Time your speech. Once you have gone over your speech a couple of times, time it! Make sure you allow time for ad lib. I tend to allow an extra two minutes for every ten minutes I rehearse.

If you are feeling nervous about an upcoming meeting or presentation: adapt what you have to say into a. Structure any presentation as a three-act story. There needs to be a beginning, middle and an end.

The Set Up.

Set the scene of your presentation, let your audience know what the title or theme of your message is going to be.

The Conflict.

Address the audience problem in this section. Make sure you explain how their problem feels and dive in to discuss their thinking patterns. This will help your audience connect and resonate with what you are going to say.

The Resolution

Give your audience a helpful and easy-to-follow resolution for their problem. For instance, 3 tips to overcome public speaking or 3 ways you can become debt-free. Don’t overcomplicate. Keep your resolution simple.
