Make 2017 your year to shine with public speaking

When we think about our own worries and self doubts it’s easy to become afraid of public speaking. But when we think of making a big change in ourselves and/or a big change in the world; a cause that needs us that’s bigger than we are, we naturally become braver and more confident communicators. What better way to make a change in the new year than by changing the way you communicate? So you want more self confidence? To finally get that promotion at work? To learn to speak without your voice shaking? Learning how to become adept at public…

Public speaking and performance anxiety go hand in hand for many people. Nightmares like forgetting lines, botching PowerPoint slides, losing notes, or fumbling over words can wake some folks up in the middle of the night howling.

Female empowerment through public speaking

There are times we fall into gender traps. Ways we are 'taught' to behave by society. I grew up thinking that it’s good to be ‘Good’; that one should be polite, smiley and pleasant. One should never offend, never assert themselves too much, nor should get too passionate or too emotional. One should, you might say, be a ‘Good Girl’. What society thinks is good actually equals obedient. Obedience taught to us by reinforcing what being a good woman looks like and sounds like… demure, humble, don’t interrupt, behave, think inside the box, don’t be mouthy or opinionated, play with girl toys, and never…

Becoming a naked speaker

When I say naked speaker, I mean without the whole set of sleek Powerpoint slides, latest projector, remote control, laser pointer, ginormous screen with latest videos and surround sound stereo. Without having memorized every single word of your speech and without copying someone else's style. Without pretence or illusion or false bravado, becoming a naked speaker is about being all the way you on the stage... all the time. In the end, being a brilliant public speaker isn’t about adding things to you as a person, it’s not about learning new individual behaviours, or copying someone else. Truth is more important…

Public Speaking Pitfall: Over Preparing!

Getting structured is all well and good, but I don’t mean to encourage you to engage in over preparing – this can lead to your content seeming rehearsed (which usually looks like bad acting), or leaving you completely stuck on the train tracks. If this happens, it’s difficult to adapt when something changes from the plan. True balance in your content is like you were a wrestler, standing with his knees slightly bent, ready for action. Form yourself enough structure so that: Your information is powerfully put together; You can easily remember the journey your talk goes on, without having to know…

Gingers five part V.O.I.C.E series

V is for Volume. The volume at which you speak is rather important to your speech giving. It’s one of the “have to get right” factors when you speak in public. Your audience won’t be able to get all the wondrous words you have to give to them if they can’t hear you or if you blow their hair back with excessive amplification. Think about  your voice. Are you a loud talker or soft spoken? If you have a booming voice then you’re in luck. Your audience will hear you loud and clear. Just be mindful to not blow them…
