Tips and Videos from World Champions of Public Speaking

Pubic Speaking Tips & Videos from World Champions

Are you afraid of speaking in front of public?

Here are the Five Public Speaking Tips from the 2014 World Champions of Public Speaking Dananjaya Hettiarachchi:

1.   Always start with a message when crafting your speech
“This message is whatever you want your audience to be thinking about when your presentation concludes…”

2. Be confident enough to be yourself
“You need to sell yourself before you sell your message,” Hettiarachi says… The only way to go in front of an audience and to present in a way that isn’t simply miming is to practice again and again, pretending (if need be) that you’re talking to a room full of your closest friends.”

3. See yourself through your audience’s eyes
“Novice speakers tend to become wrapped up in themselves, which may just be because they’re afraid to acknowledge a room full of listeners. But if you’re going to speak, you need to realize that you’re doing it for the benefit of others, not yourself…”

4. Have a forum to practice

5. Find the right coach or mentor
Hettiarachchi says, you should find someone willing to help you grow as a public speaker. Interestingly, this does not need to be someone who can teach you advanced speaking techniques; they just need to be someone who “gives you permission to explore possibilities, who gives you permission to fail,” he says…
