Speakers Corner Shares How to be a Motivational Speaker (10 Tips)

We can never get enough of good tips on how to be a good speaker, especially if it’s about motivating or compelling people to do what you want them to do. Below are ten tips from Speakers Corner on how to do just that:

1. Know Your Subject – It is important that you be a specialist or expert on your subject. When you’re credible, you can inspire and motivate more people.

2. Be Flexible – Be adaptable to last minute changes and plans.

3. Be Honest – Be truthful about your abilities and the kinds of topics you are prepared to talk about.

4. General Public Speaking Skills – This skill can be developed over time so keep on practicing and always be open to feedback.

5. Be Passionate – Even if you keep talking about the same thing to different sets of audiences, with passion, each speech will always feel exciting and your message will shine through.

6. Be Prepared – This applies not just to your speaking abilities but to getting everything ready as well — the venue, the food, props, etc.

7. Know Where You Can Go for Advice – As you establish yourself in the public speaking industry, it would help if you have a speaker bureau or agency to go to to help build your client list and promote your services and skills.

8. Know Your Audience – By having an idea what your audience is like, you’ll avoid embarrassing cultural anecdotes and instead make your speech more interesting for them.

9. Refine Your Act – Practice makes perfect so keep on practicing and throw away those that didn’t work for you in the past.

10. Market Yourself Well – Take advantage of blogs, social media sites and adverts.
