Public Speaking Tips : Overcome Fear of Public Speaking Course

Do you need to be persuasive in your presentations? Have you attended a public speaking school yet still have problems with public speaking? Do you need to be persuasive in your presentations? And you've watched video courses that include everything from fonts choices to fashion tips, but they haven't taught you anything practical to help you sell your ideas, products or services?

My experience was the same. I've watched actors, and the only thing I learned was how to clear my vocal cords before speaking. Sales people were too aggressive for my style. And they were boring too, so why would I copy them? And those computer experts? Well, they usually don't have the experience of the mentioned professionals.

That's why I recorded my practical tips for your public speaking from my 21 years of giving presentations. They may not bring you a $17,000 business award like they brought me, but they might - because by watching these compact lectures you'll have the same potentially winning background that I had. How did I do it? With the help of the SALT Framework.

SALT Framework stands for:

  1. Statement
  2. Appearance
  3. Logic
  4. Tips

SALT includes practical knowledge about how to present a statement that will be long remembered by your audience. It explains how to enhance your presentation appearance to be most persuasive. It also has logical steps before, during and after your speaking. And finally SALT includes videos of additional tips gained from actual experience.


So why don't you stop looking for that black pepper to spice up your presentations when what you really need to master is using salt first? Just imagine that feeling when you start speaking in front of your family, friends or business audiences - and you don't even need to think about how to use your hands, how to appear relaxed or achieve your goal because it all happens automatically.

Section 1: Introduction to Public Speaking Tips

Brief introduction about the Public Speaking Tips course with the SALT Framework explanation. SALT stand for:






Tell all students where are you from, what brought you to public speaking and what struggles you have now!

Section 2: SALT Part I - Statement

The most important thing whenever you speak is to have your goal in mind - and to work for it.


What should your audience take away? Remember supporting your goal.

For the SMART goals new definition I have used in this section I'd like to thank dr. Dr. Richard Feenstra and his course Achieve More in Less Time Using SMART Goals. Do take his free Udemy course for more deep explanation of the topic.


Brief overview of the motivators you need to know to recognize and use to your (speaker's) advantage.

Ideas in this section used from the book Special Edition using PowerPoint 2007, Que Publishing (2007).


How to start a presentation? And what are grabs to get the boredom out of your performance!

Ideas in this section used from the book Special Edition using PowerPoint 2007, Que Publishing (2007).


For your last (or upcoming) presentation create a powerful statement - define your goal, call to action and elements you will use to deliver successful presentation.

Section 3: SALT Part II - Presentation Models to Support Your Statement

What are 5 most common presentation models and when to choose each one of them.


What is the Ideal model and business examples when to use it.


What is the most commonly used (but least attractive!) presentation model to use.


What is the Q&A presentation model and where it excels most.


Why the Satisfying Needs presentation model could be your success factor in modern times.


The Problem-Solution presentation model is virtualy the easiest yet it can be most powerful too.


Step by step business plan presentation as a case study for a presentation model.

Download the simple powerpoint file below to use it as your presentation (do modify it first!). There are also 3 links, two are for pitch deck slide discussion (10-slide version and latest 5-slide version, getting traction from 2013 because of less time spent for presenting, good for busy investors). The last link is for a website for more pitch ideas.

3 questions

In a short quiz useful information about presentation models to be remembered long-term is repeated.

Now practice - think about your last (or upcoming) presentation and enhance it.
Section 4: SALT Part III - Logic

What is most important to make your public speaking logical, well rounded and persuasive.


Two (2) very easy positions you will use in all presentations. These are neutral and frontal. You'll be presenting your speech in neutral position most of the time.


How to move your hands during a presentation (with slide projection).


Do not fall in the simple trap many people presenting do.


Important knowledge you need to know (and practice) for engaging your audience.


How to behave during a question from your audience and how to properly answer it.


What is treeline in public speaking context.


Live presentation to establish three positions in typical public speaking performance.


Satir Categories are body poses and gestures based on the work of Virginia Satir. She studied mainly people (family) relations and during that she found typical poses people use in communication. They are now called Satir Categories and here are all 5 with video examples in the lecture:

  1. The Placater
  2. The Blamer
  3. The Computer
  4. The Leveler
  5. The Distractor

Check them and after some practice you will soon use them unconsciously - yet they are really persuasive!

See also the external web page below, showing quite well your hand gestures during speaking.


In the last exercise for a course you'll do just one longer yet still quick task.
