Public speaking, presenting at a large business meeting or even to small groups can be daunting for many people.
Do you have to speak in meetings? Do you have to speak in or to community organisations? Do you represent your business to internal staff or to clients outside of your organisation? These are just a few of the occasions where you will have to speak and will want to be competent and confident.
Having a toolkit of methods and approaches will dramatically improve your confidence. Confidence comes from competence.
Developing your speaking skills is a smart investment. You will be more focused, expressive and team or audience-centered.
Hopefully there are good reasons you will be speaking in meetings and events – your knowledge, skill or experiences about the organisation, its products and its services. People do not just buy what you say they buy how you say it.
