We do a lot of work helping our clients to get up and speak at conferences. We believe it’s a powerful way to help get your message across, whether it’s a marketing message, or a cause or charity story.
The trouble is, speaking at conferences is no mean feit. Well, not to do really well in any case. Public speaking is challenging and the impact of your presentation will be impacted by your ability to deliver a good talk. Can you tell a story, with real impact?
We’ll be sharing on here examples of great speakers (whatever the subject) for your inspiration. When you agree to do a speaking gig, think about not only the message you want to get across, but the performance you will give.
Just enjoyed Sir Ken’s TED talk? What did he do well?
Watch it again and think about:
- his use of humour
- how he emphasised messages with tone of voice
- how he used pauses in his presentation
- how he engaged with the audience by relating to their life experiences
This is perhaps one of the best speeches you will ever see.
