The Importance of Presentation Skills


Tips for Public Speaking

Speaking in front of people:
One of the biggest fears for most adults.

Yet life provides many occasions where we must do exactly that: speak in front of people, sometimes one-to-one, sometimes small group, sometimes large group; sometimes in person and now, sometimes digitally (webinars, video conferences, podcasts).  How can we prepare for these oral communication challenges?

I wish teachers spent less time on Shakespeare and more time teaching speaking skills.  I know that is a bold statement, but no one has ever asked me to do
iambic pentameter yet I have often been called upon to speak in public.

At an early age, I decided to work on becoming a good speaker and I believe that my focus on effective oral communication has been worth more to me professionally and socially than anything else I have done.

Now, I show others how to be effective communicators.

It can be done: everyone can become more competent and more comfortable as a speaker.  It doesn’t take studying the 39,000 books at Amazon on “public speaking.”  All it takes is understanding the eleven pieces of all effective oral communication.
