As we work to become more effective public speakers here at Thrive Events HQ, we continue to learn valuable insights. Many of them involve our audiences and what they want and expect from us when we deliver presentations. Here are a few truths we’ve discovered about audience members that make public speaking a bit easier.
First, your audience expects you to be an expert in the topic you’re discussing, so there’s no reason to betray that belief in any way. Let the idea that you’re an expert authority in your chosen subject fill you with confidence before and during your time at the podium.
It’s also important to remember that your listeners want you to succeed just as badly as you want to make a positive impression. During our Thrive Events speeches, we remind ourselves that the people we’re addressing are on our side. This helps us stay motivated to deliver the information we’ve prepared in the clearest way possible.
Another key thing to keep in mind when speaking in front of an audience is that its members (typically) don’t know what your remarks are supposed to be. With that knowledge securely in place, you don’t have to worry about getting a bit out of order here and there.
We remember these facts every time we give a speech. For more on how we’re improving our public speaking proficiency, check out the Thrive Events Newswire.
