Making yourself a powerful speaker is lot easier than you think. Having knowledge on any subject matter is different and delivering it in an impactful manner is a different art altogether. Having that power- in terms of dynamism of your abilities matters greatly in the world of business speeches and presentation. In today’s scenario, people who can do smart work and have excellent communication skills can climb the ladder of success and reach the summit (peak).
From today, think in terms of speaking version of you, a performance persona that is the essence of talking about your subject arar. That is the person, your audiences will find interesting. In other words, it’s not enough just to be who you are when you present. You have to construct a performance version of yourself.
1) Build Rapport
Having a nice equation with the audience, makes things absolutely easy and cake walk for the speaker. The speaker should find a way to identify the audience’s value and experiences and externalize the connection by what you say. Most listeners resist speakers whose background or known views are noticeably different from their own. Remember that our experiences, motivations and feelings unite all of us around the world for more that they divide us. Create an atmosphere in your presentations that fosters persuasion and believability.
Every audience arrives with the preconceptions of the speaker. They may have nothing to do with your personally, but may be tied to the topic, organisation or viewpoint to represent. Credibility resides in speakers who appear confident and committed. There is simply no substitute for enthusiasm.
Advertise your competence in everything you say and do. When you trust yourself and what you are saying, your audience will trust you. This is the first step that allows them to invest you with presence and authority. Every audience wants to feel that they are in good hands. Make it easy for listeners to relax and trust that you are such a speaker. All it takes is for you to trust yourself. Believe that you are a natural performer.
Speaker plays a crucial role in all the aspects. The moods and the emotions of the audiences are totally dependent on the speaker. The ball lies in the court of the speaker, to which direction does he want the audiences to be taken.
