TALK TRAINERS TIPS
A teacher once told me that," Preparation and Practice Prevents Panic". How true is that!
In order to experience success when you stand to speak to a audience or even at a social function, the necessary steps need to be taken to achieve your success. What are you prepared to "DO" to make it a success.
Know your subject, Know your audience, Know your message.
Be willing to prepare your speech that it firstly creates interest. Find a great opening, a question creates that interest. Make the body of your speech "meaty" food for thought, and your closing can be tied into the opening. Creating "book ends" Leave your audience with a take home message. How do you become a good speaker? You plan what you are going to do, refine it, refine it, refine it and then practice it, practice it, practice it.
I guess my teacher was right......
