The glass ceiling is a term that usually refers to a barrier that prevents one from achieving a high level of success. The barriers are perceived to be multifaceted. Barriers can relate to acceptance into a network, gender, academic credentials, or any number of perceived barriers.

When we were searching for a speaker for our Professional Development Conference in February and we had been referred to a speaker that had spoken at TED. We followed up and made contact with his agent. We should have known that anyone with an agent was out of our affordability range. Nonetheless, we called to inquire about the fee and availability. Having heard the speaker on YouTube we were ready to invest in a quality speaker to help bring in a larger audience. We were not prepared for the conversation that resulted.

NO one is born a public speaker. Public speaking is an acquired art that is refined by frequent practice and experience. To be effective at public speaking, you should work on acquiring and mastering a certain number of skills.

Start your presentation with an impressive statement or visual effect to engage the audience and make them want to stay on to listen for more. When you end a talk, leave them with something that they can bring home – something for them to ponder or to desire to hear more about.

Conduct research on the topic you are going to present. Ensure that you know a lot about the subject. To be a great speaker, you need to develop interest and passion for the topic that you are going to speak on. When you are passionate about the topic, you will be able to deliver the message with greater enthusiasm and excitement.

Build rapport with the audience. Establish eye contact and interact with them if possible. Have a question and answer session but ensure that you have sufficient skills and knowledge to handle it well. A question and answer session usually provides the audience with a better and clearer picture because it is more related to their own experiences.

Public speaking, just as many other skills, can’t be mastered without practicing and knowing your mistakes. It is a first step toward improvement. Here are some of the most commonly seen errors along with advice on how to avoid them.

Mistake #1: Reading from a script

Not only does reading your presentation word for word significantly undermine your credibility, as people can’t be that sure that you know what you are talking about, but it is also very boring. Having your key notes beside the PowerPoint presentation is a good reminder that won’t stand in the way of your spontaneity.

Mistake #2: Talking too fast

You are anxious and you want it to be done as soon as possible so you speed up your speech. Talking too fast reveals your lack of confidence, undermines your credibility and makes it difficult for the audience to follow your presentation.
