How To Make An Impact
Public speaking is very much about improving our communication skills, for when we know how to communicate effectively (to one person or to an entire room full of people) we also know how to inform, inspire and persuade others.
Each and every time you open your mouth, you tell the world who you are. People form opinions about us, based not only on our appearance but also on our communication skills. And while many people go to great lengths to look good, dress professionally and so on, very few people take any sort of action to improve their communication skills. And believe me, there is nothing more effective than standing on stage for improving your communication skills!
Many of the world’s most successful people are also highly developed communicators. They have taken the time and energy to develop and hone their communication skills. As a result, they know how to inform, persuade and inspire others.
Public speaking is a sure-fire way to improve your communication skills.
Do You Want To Be In High Demand?
Strong communicators are in high demand. Next time you pick up the newspaper have a look at the careers section – regardless of whether you speak on stage or not. Virtually every job listing requests that applicants have good or excellent ‘communication skills’. Your success lies in your ability to communicate your message – regardless of which platform you speak from. If your message is unclear and you appear unconfident, this dramatically impacts on your end result.
But just like any other skill, public speaking is a skill which must be learned!
So, why don’t you make a point to practice your presentation and hone those communication skills even further? You can never stop learning how to communicate more and more effectively – and this will serve you in almost every walk of life, be it professionally or personally.
