Tip #1: What is your goal
Free piece of advice; if you don’t know what your goal is during public speaking, you will always be fearful of making speeches.
Your goal means your end result. Why are you making the presentation, what do you want to achieve at the very end.
In other words, what is the purpose of your presentation?
For instance, is your goal to inform, educate, entertain or simply persuade your audience to take a particular course of action.
A goal gives you clear direction when a presentation. It ensures that you do not get carried away or shift from the main focus.
Another important item to note when writing a goal is to ensure that you do not have too many goals.
Just one will do! You can then have supporting sub-points.
Too many goals will only confuse you, your audience and cause you to forget your main points.
Once your goal is clear, the next step is tip no.2.
Tip #2: A powerful introduction
How well are you able to capture your audience attention?
Now if you want to finally beat those nerves and start speaking with confidence, learn how to open your speech with a powerful introduction.
Either start with a personal story, a question, a joke or anything else which will catch and keep the audience attention.
Remember what somebody once said, “in public speaking, you have to make sure you finish speaking before your audience is finished listening.”
