The importance of public speaking can't be overstated!
You may not be running for a public office or planning to accept an Oscar... but here's a fact.
Feeling confident in front of a crowd can improve ALL areas of your life, professionally AND personally!
Sooner or later, you will be asked to speak in front of an audience. When that time comes, would you rather be caught flatfooted (or tongue-tied as the case may be)... or will you grab the opportunity and TRIUMPH?
Of course, these are just a few examples. There are plenty more.
And you could be called upon to deliver any of them with very little notice... and no opportunity to back out!
Will you be ready to take on the challenge when it comes? Or will you falter before you even begin?
Given the importance of public speaking, it's good to know that it's a skill we can all acquire once we put our minds to it. Anyone can learn to speak - and speak well - and it's something we can teach ourselves from the comfort of our own homes. (That being said, I do recommend forcing yourself to speak up in public at every opportunity in order to overcome any anxiety).
Here are some quick tips:
Learning to speak well in public will hold you in good stead at work and in countless social situations. The confidence it gives you helps open doors and enables you to achieve your goals. It is a skill that every person, regardless of age, gender, creed, religion or profession should strive to learn.
