Hello and good morning to everyone.
At first we have to try our best to beat our nervousness in order to succeed. All people can encounter some physiological and emotional reactions like pounding hearts and trembling hands. Do not let these feelings to make a fool of yourself. You have to remember that the adrenaline rush that makes you nervous can also make you more alert and ready to give your best performance.
The best way to beat nervousness is to prepare and prepare as much as you can. Take your time to go through your plans and notes many times. Once you have become well connected with the subject matter, practice—a lot.
One should know very well about their audiences. Before you start to create your message, consider who the audiences are. Study and know as much about your listeners as you can. This will help you to choose the most effective words, level of information, organization pattern, and motivational statement to inspire your listeners.
You should work hard to organize your material properly and also try your best to create the framework for your speech. Note down the main points of the topic, by dividing those points into some parts, such as-overall purpose, specific purpose, main idea, and some other main points. Make sure to grasp the listeners’ attention in the first 45 seconds of your speech.
Try to keep your focus on the listeners. Study and try to understand their reactions, properly shape your message, and stay flexible. Delivering a boring and pre-identified speech will guarantee that you lose the attention and can also confuse even your most devoted listeners.
Always follow your heart and be yourself, don’t become a talking head—in any type of public speaking event. You will be able to achieve a better credibility if your personality shines through, and your audience will trust what you have to say.
We should try to make our speeches humorous in some way. Inject a funny instance in your presentation, and you will certainly grab your audience’s attention and as well as their interest.
Reading from a script or slide fractures is not appropriate in the interpersonal connection. By maintaining proper and careful eye contact with the audience, you can always keep the focus on yourself and your message.
In some cases nonverbal communication carries the most parts of the message. Good delivery does not call attention to it, but instead conveys the speaker’s ideas clearly.
Sometimes try to use a startling statistic, an interesting anecdote, or popular quotation. Conclude your speech with a dynamic approach that your audience is sure to remember.
But do not use too many anecdotes or instances, as it may break the direct connection to the audience, so use them sparingly. They should enhance or clarify your content, thus help you to capture the attention of your audiences.
Good communication is never perfect, and similarly nobody expects you to be perfect in your speech. However, putting some serious efforts to prepare will help you deliver a better speech. You may not be able to omit your nerves completely, but you can be able to minimize them by those steps.
