Three Top Tips to become a top speaker | Business intelligence for recruitment and resourcing professionals

Three Top Tips to become a top speaker | Business intelligence for recruitment and resourcing professionals | Metaglossia: The Translation World | Scoop.it

You don’t have to be on the speaking circuit to require top notch speaking skills today. If you’re in any sort of leadership position where you need to give team briefings, present reviews to senior management and stakeholders, or raise your company profile by speaking at conferences and the like, you need to become an excellent speaker.
 
People are used to seeing Hollywood and political celebrities perform – and will measure you against that standard. So how do you develop your skills to this level?
 
When I sat in my first Toastmaster club in 1994, I was scared to death – but eager to learn. By 2001, I “out spoke” 25,000 contestants from 14 countries to win the title World Champion of Public Speaking.
 
So here my three top tips:

1. Be so good, people talk about how much you helped them for years to come
 
Focus on your audience's outcome, not some "get known quick” trick. Help them get where they want to go. Your energy and efforts are invested by making your content king and delivery your queen. If you are required to deliver boring content, good. That should make it easy to stand out from others who have to teach the same thing. You still bring your brand to it. Make it so much fun, that you create a demand for your personal brand. 
 
People who are the best, earn more and are simply more in demand. Why? Because raving fans will do most of the marketing for them.
 
2. To be the best, you need to learn from the best
 
Why? Because they think differently. Identify what specific aspects of your speaking you want to work on. If you’re relatively new to speaking, then join a speaking club such as Toastmasters International. Club members will help you to identify your speaking strengths and any bad habits that are holding you back.
 
Seek out the best mentors you can – they might be voice coaches, former actors, comedians or other professional speakers. Be a sponge.
 
Approach your learning with intensity. Want to get more out of everything you do? Bring more to everything you do. It determines what you get out of it and how much you grow because of it.
