How To Speak To A Crowd

Speaking to a crowd does not come naturally to most people. A lot of people actually tend to get stage fright and freeze up even though they are very well prepared. So how can you help prevent this?

Write it all down clearly If you know what exactly you are going to say, then there is no way for you to mess up. Even if you get stuck at any given point you can just glance down at your paper and refresh your memory. Remember that the human mind is not guaranteed to retain all that you memorized so it is always best to write down your speech as clearly and concisely as possible. I have found that having your notes in the form of bullet points is more helpful than having it in paragraphs.

Practice makes perfect
If you are going to spend five minutes talking to a crowd, then you need to spend at least ten times that amount of time practicing and rehearing your speech. The best speakers do not just wing it, No, they have perfected their speech until they are sure of themselves. Speak out loud and get a few people to listen to your speech and critic it. If you want to give yourself an additional chance to do exceptionally well then just attend a few public speaking classes Melbourne and will be good to go.

Body language
Words are not enough, you need to make gestures and facial expressions that help the audience relate and also give them
a sense of the emotions you are feeling. The more connected the audience is to you, the more they will be drawn into the speech you are giving. So communicate not just with your words but your body language too.

Expect the unexpected
No matter what happens just stay calm and carry on (sounds cliché I know, but it’s what you got to do). Maybe you might have technical difficulties with your microphone or somebody might say something that upsets you just before you speak. Just brush it off and keep yourself focused on your goal. Certain sales pitch training should help you learn to deal with such issues as these.
