Faces of boredom. Sneaky yawns. People looking at their watches. Listeners who within five minutes of the presentation barely remember what it was about.
Do any of these situations sound familiar to you? Were you the one presenting?
If you have answered yes, surely you already know that these are all symptoms of the same problem. You don’t know how to communicate in public with impact.
When you present in front of a group of people, you fail to capture their attention. Every time you address an audience, you fail to communicate your messages in a clear, forceful or memorable way. And this despite the fact that you are a competent professional and that you know very well the subject you are talking about.
I know that situation. I have been there. It is very frustrating when you deliver a presentation and after finishing it you know you are not going to achieve the results you wanted.
Maybe your performance as a speaker is not bad, but just average. The problem is, average speakers don’t connect, inspire, or persuade. I see it every day across the board. Good professionals and potential leaders who fail to stand out because they do not know how to communicate effectively.
If you lack the skills and knowledge to communicate successfully, public speaking has surely become an unpleasant experience for you. You face it with fear and insecurity, even anxiety, rather than with excitement and enthusiasm.
And surely that causes you to miss important opportunities to make your voice heard, to communicate your message and to stand out as a professional, leader or member of your community.
In short, you are depriving yourself of developing your full potential and moving towards the achievement of your dreams and goals, whatever they may be.
Let me tell you something. I can help you change that.
