Talk about what you know about
Great orators, influential speakers and confident presenters all have one thing in common. They discuss subjects that they are passionate about.
As a new speaker don’t be tempted to deliver a speech in a style that isn’t natural to you. Rather than picking a subject that you need to research in detail, choose a talk on something that means something to you.
Confidence comes from being comfortable in your subject matter. When your mind goes of track, you can easily pull it back as your knowledge on this topic is immense.
The two P’s – prepare and practice
As a coach people come to me to increase their speaking confidence. At the session start I ask what they did to prepare for their speech. Time and time again, speakers tell me that they wrote a speech hours before the presentation!
As a public speaker myself, who is high in confidence, I would be scared if I had to go on stage with no preparation.
To increase confidence you need to practice, practice, practice. If you fail to prepare you prepare to fail.
There are many structures, strategies and methods you can use to deliver your speech. Certain styles suit particular speeches. The key when it comes to confidence, is to choose a structure.
A structure keeps you on point, creates a boundary which stops you waffling and can be used as a memory aid.
Experienced speakers will take this one step further and mix rhetorical devices, changes in tone and the use of gestures in with their speech structure
To increase your confidence when it comes to speaking in front of an audience you need to go back to basics. First find a subject matter you known well, prepare and practice your speech and use a mixture of structures and speech techniques to take your speech to the next level.
