|Section 1: 10 Best Tips to be viewed & re-viewed in any order. Personalize it, it’s yours.|
|When exiting a Presentation, Seminar, or Speech, the audience is often asked, "How did you like the event?” If they comment, they invariably say something like this: “Oh She/He was great!” They almost always 1st comment on the Speaker or Presenter… not the Content delivered.|
|Fight "Writers Block“ and begin with a basic plan, then fill-in the blanks.|
|Physical Gestures will help you more effectively deliver the meaning of the words you say to the audience.|
|It’s always a Conversation, so make it a pleasant experience... as you would with a group of friends.|
|Mental Attitude can help us or hurt us. You don’t have to “force a change of attitude”, simply coax a change of attitude by learning and applying these speaking skills. Remember: it’s not about you, its all about the reason or Goal you have for participating in the event. And too, you don’t have to start-out as a Keynote Speaker. Being part of a small group answering questions from the audience is much more likely to be successful for you. Look for the opportunities and say “Yes” to one of them. You can do this.|
|Movement attracts attention. It’s almost like a dance, but in this case you design the steps that fit you best. So personalize the “dance” to fit your personality.|
|What more can I say? Oh yes, never assume that your sense of Humor is shared by the audience.|
|Remember this #1-rule: never, ever think that the Mic is turned off! Even a Mic on a table across the room can pick up your voice. Be wise and never comment or joke about anyone or anything that you are not prepared to live with forever. Think I’m being too cautious? Go watch YouTube for examples.|
|Don’t ignore the importance of this “opportunity.” Prepare to be questioned.|
|Speaking & Presenting are physical activities. So physically practice the skills & techniques and they’ll become natural to you. No surprises. Reading & Watching are no substitute for “Doing.” Using a video capture device is a good learning tool. A community-college course might be a good idea if one’s available. It gives you a place to practice and improve. …and finally: Perfection is an opinion.|
Anxiety, embarrassment, fear, stage fright: it seems like whatever you call it, most people are affected by it.
For much of my early life I struggled with the fear of embarrassing myself in front of other people: High School, University, and always, social situations. Then through a curiosity of life, I found myself with the opportunity to work in media in Los Angeles. It was difficult at first because the old feelings of embarrassment came with me wherever I went.
But I challenged myself, and with trial-&-error, time & experience, I learned to manage my anxiety and work effectively in spite of it. I've worked professionally in Media, in both America & Japan: TV, Videos, Films, Event Host, VoiceOver, and I'm a long-time member of the American Entertainment union: SAG-AFTRA.
I do believe there is an anxiety, nervousness, or stage-fright that prevents most people from speaking or participating in public events. There are reasons, but I no longer accept the generic phrase "Fear of Speaking" as the reason.
To help other people overcome their anxiety or embarrassment, I developed the "Performance of Speaking" Workshops. This is a program where participants learn the practical & proven Skills needed to become a confident Speaker, Advocator, Educator, and best of all, a Participator in Group & Public events of all kinds.
This Course is based on my personal real-world learning experiences, earned over 25 years working in high-pressure Media in both Hollywood & Tokyo, combined with the practical experience of teaching College Extension courses, and Coaching private clients in the US & Japan.
We all know that confident Speaking is Key to attracting attention, generating opportunity, expanding personal & professional Networks, and demonstrating Leadership.
If you're ready to learn to Speak for yourself, to present your own Solutions, Opinions, and Ideas, then this course, modeled after my Workshops, is for you. It will help you accomplish your speaking & confidence goals in a practical, skillful, and enjoyable online Course.
