Whenever a new team member joins us, we share with him or her several key guidelines for mastering public speaking. Follow these four strategies and you will immediately starting making stronger presentations:
- Invest in Preparation: Practice is the best thing you can do to improve your presentation. Running through a talk in advance will make you more comfortable with the material. It will also help you hone your delivery to make it as impactful as possible.
- Think Confidently: Self-talk makes a big difference to how we perceive ourselves. Affirmations have helped many Bear Claw Events, Inc. associates exude confidence. Believe in yourself and you will perform to your highest potential.
- Energize: The most captivating presentations are very enthusiastic. Connect with your audience and get them engaged by energizing yourself before your talk. Think about yourself and your content as being exciting. If you are interested in what you have to say, your audience will be too.
- Relax: There is no reason to get worked up over public speaking. Just relax and stay mentally present in the moment. The calmer you are, the more effective your presentation will be.
