The Best Public Speaking Advice

A few years ago, I received a few gems of speaking advice that I share with anyone is looking to develop their public speaking skills. This advice while simple is very relevant.

  1. Know your audience. An active speaker understands the audience that they’re speaking to. Ask the host about the demographics of the audience and, tailor your talk so that it’s relevant to the people who are listening to you.
  2. Know your stuff. Study the material that you’re going to present you do not have to rely heavily on note-cards or a presentation slide deck.speaker
  3. Get to the point, and sit down. No one pays attention to the speaker who rambles on and on. After you reach the objectives of your speech, take your seat.

Apply these simple tips to your next speaking engagement and let me know how it goes.
