Scared of Public Speaking? ~ 110

Professionalism, Self development


Feel the fear and overcome it!

Public speaking often fills people with fear! Where that fear comes from is unclear but for some, it can stem from being made to speak at school.

Whatever the reason it's an important part of life seeking with strangers making a toast or delivering a presentation. Eddie Rice author of Toast: Short speeches Big Impact, joins me today to help us take those fears.

Tips for public speaking for Eddie! 

Listen in for all the good conversation but if you want some quick starter tips here's what Eddie said.

To improve you confidence around public speaking:

  • Build up to bigger audiences ~ Go to Toastmasters
  • Don't sell, share your professionalism in answering questions your potential clients want the answers to
  • Don't script the whole thing use bullet points
  • Tell stories to illustrate your points they can be easier to speak to and easier to understand
  • Work on your mindset, think you can't you're right think you can you're right

'Becoming is better than being'
