leader-speaking-to-audience-d-rendered-illustration-42292019As a presenter or public speaker, wouldn’t you want to conquer your fears and master the art of public speaking or presenting? Of course you would want this! There is no magic bullet to do the trick so please just bear with what I have to say.

Below are five tips on how you can master public speaking:

1. Embrace Nerves – You just have to accept the fact that nerves will always be there. We are humans after all. We feel all sorts of different emotions, one of which is nervousness when faced with a seemingly challenging task like talking in front of an audience. Having nerves is fine.  This means that your energy level is up and that your senses are heightened. It’s how you handle them that will count the most. So use that energy and turn it into something positive by being in the moment, doing your thing on stage and engaging the audience.

2. Spend some time in the space if you can – It helps if you can go to the venue in advance and start visualizing yourself doing your presentation or speech. Just like what the Law of Attraction says “you attract what you think”, so think about going up there in front of the audience with full confidence in yourself. By doing this, you’ve already won half the battle.

3. Know Your Audience – By spending some time with your audience before you even get on that stage to talk, you’ll have an idea of their background and you can then tailor-fit your stories and questions to make sure that it will resonate with them.

So there! I know these are just three things but they are very important. To know 15 more tips to master public speaking, please head to this link: Guest Posting: 18 Tips for Mastering Public Speaking, by Kyle Ingham
