Want to be a better speaker?
Do These Three Things!
That’s correct, write!
Blog regularly, a minimum of 300 words, at least every other week.
“Content is King!” You’ll learn something each time you write a post. The information you’ll share will make you an EXPERT in the minds of others.
2. Make an Audio Recording of that post.
After you’ve written the article, record the audio of it.
The first time I recorded a post, it was a very humbling experience! As I was making the audio, I found grammatical errors. I found spelling errors. I had to rewrite some things. Making those changes made my article much better.
In addition, as I was listening, that experience was humbling, also! Sometimes I mumbled. A few times my voice faded, and at times, I found myself speaking in monotone. I re-recorded the post until I got it correct. Listening to my recording was one of best things I’ve ever done, and I do it every time I write a blog post.
Written Post + Audio Post = Better Writing and Better Speaking.
I export my audio recording to my NO SWEAT Public Speaking! iTunes Podcast Channel.
Having a podcast channel has two benefits.
1. It’s another way for Google to find you.
2. Many prefer listening to reading. Note the popularity of podcasts and audio books.
3. Make a Video.
This suggestion will take your speaking skills to the next level. Video yourself delivering a presentation.
The first time you hear yourself it’s tough.
It’s tougher when you see and hear yourself. But, it is absolutely worth it.
You don’t need anything fancy. Your phone works fine. When looking at yourself, you’ll see your nonverbal communication: facial expressions, gestures, and body movements. Those non-verbal elements of communication trump your voice and how you use it. Adjust those elements as needed when making more videos.
The combination of Written Post + Video Post
will absolutely take your presentations to another level!
This stuff works!
