Understanding the fundamentals of great public speaking

How do you define a great talk or judge if someone is a phenomenal speaker? Let's fact it, the art form of public speaking will not change as fast as the rules of social media. Throughout history, leaders needed to know how to captivate people's attention and more importantly, convince them to follow their cause to create more impact. 

In this week, learn the core principles that makes up compelling public speaking and presentations.

Owning your mindset, body language and vocal variety

Public speaking is not all about the words that you use or the content that you have. It's about your authenticity, the way you move your hands, your presence and how you deliver your content. Most adults tend to focus too much on information (how does my powerpoint look?, am i saying the right things?, what do you think of my intro?) 

Yes, your content matters but the way you deliver your content is as important to your overall success. Learn how to set yourself up for success by owning your mindset, body language and vocal variety.

Making your message sticky

Have you ever heard a speaker and loved everything that the speaker was saying? Great speakers have the ability to share their content strategically. They choose their words and stories so they have a better chance of relating with the audience and moving them to action. 

You don't have to know every word in the dictionary and be a wordsmith but you do have to understand what will make your content compelling. In this week, you will learn actionable strategies and techniques to improve your message so that it will be more memorable, engaging and persuasive.

Becoming a pro at impromptu speaking

Do you feel like you don't know what to say when you are put on the spot? Impromptu speaking is difficult and even the best speakers stumble. Impromptu speaking can be mastered just like playing the guitar. If you never played the guitar, will you become a pro at it just by picking it up or do you have to understand the correct way to place your fingers hands or know choose which chords you have to play. 

This is the same with impromptu speaking. You will learn how to practice impromptu speaking with a variety of fundamental communication structures to help improve your impromptu speaking in any situation.

Storytelling, persuasion & rhetoric

It's not enough just to pass information along. We have google for that. Think about it, every time you speak in public, you are trying to convince people to adapt your ideas. It's not about selling, it's about helping individuals change their lives through the message that you are sharing. 

Whether you are giving a science presentation or speaking to thousands, you need to know how to make people warm up to your ideas and love them. Otherwise, why would people want to listen to you? Learn how storytelling, persuasion and rhetoric works and how you can apply these principles to your next talk.

Wrap up

Review and reflect upon everything that we have learned. Discussion around what worked for you and how you will move forward to become the best speaker that you can be in the future.

Please bring a pen, notebook or laptop to take notes and most importantly, an open mind.
