Melbourne Classical Radio - Today I'm going to speak about how to improve your public speaking skills and how to give a fantastic public speech or a public performance.

I will be sharing some very important super tips in the end as well.

Let's get started.

Public speaking, Why is it so important and what is the problem today? Do you know more than 50% of people don't enjoy public speaking and get scared speaking in public.

The most common problem we see is stage fear. When you see a big group of people, you get scared and you start stammering, can you believe that when I was a young graduate in Schindler, I was in a big crowd where the CEO was giving an address, all of a sudden I was asked a question to answer.

I knew the answer, I stammered and blabbered just by seeing the sheer number of people standing in front of me and I chickened out, I probably lost a fantastic opportunity at that point of time, to make a strong impression, but I learned my lesson, the hard way.

Today, I have given more than 5,000-10,000 public speeches in front of so many audiences in different countries and hence, I can share with you through my own experience and by seeing others and by reading a lot of material, what really works in the real world, not just in a theoretical world. 

Today whether we like it or not, Public speaking has become an integral part of life.

Now, this doesn't mean addressing a shareholders meeting alone, but even if you are in a team, in a team meeting, you're asked to say things. Same can apply when you have small gatherings.

And if your aspiration is to be a leader, you have to learn how to do public speaking because as a leader, your job is to communicate messages to a mass audience or employees.

Let's get to some history about public speaking before this. Public speaking has always existed ever since humankind came into the universe, it was always used as a form of

communicating messages to people to persuade them for a cause or to convince them or to gather their views or feedback.

It's told that it started during the Roman and Greek times, it was even called as a rhetoric by the Greeks, the word for public speaking. During those times it was very formal kind of speaking, not very informal, not very conversational but later on after World War II, public speaking became more conversational like more of interaction like how I'm doing with you all.

It didn't start off with power points which we of course know. So the need for the tone body language, The Voice, gestures, All these became very, very important. Messaging. Like if you can see that yellow board behind me, that's the chasing obscene success board.

These kind of boards were made to show people and sell the concepts, then with the Advent of Technology slowly, we had overhead projectors, computers came, And finally PowerPoints came. Today, even PowerPoints are getting outdated, people are using mood boards, people are using Graphics, whole lot of things.

So that's how Public Speaking is evolved. Now it's become into everyone's life so you can't run away from public speaking. It is better We all learn how to make a good speech in front of public. Now, we knew why we need to do public speaking, we have learn some history as well.

Now how do we become a good public speaking personality? And when I speak about personalities, I'm sure a lot of great public speaking people come into your mind, President Obama, Prime Minister Narendra Modi even Our favorite good old chief minister Lalu Prasad Yadav, a lot of the celebrities Shahrukh for example, is a great public speaker, a lot of content creator, YouTubers, corporate.

These are some famous public speaking personality. So if you want to improve watch some of theirs videos online as well, you'll get a lot of ideas.

Now, let's go into how to improve public speaking? For any speech for that matter I think preparation is the most important thing. 

Even to give this particular talk today, I've been preparing for two or three days, writing down. first my initial thoughts in my iPhone Notes, then transfer it into a paper, using a pen,

which makes it easier for me to remember the key points that I wanted to convey with all of you and there's nothing wrong in using the good old paper and Pen to prepare as well, which is what I used for today.

So, when you're talking about preparing, What is that you have to prepare? You have to first know the kind of audience that you're trying to convey this message.

Are they young, old, are they intellectuals? Are they not highly literate? Female, male, understand all of these things while preparing yourself and then accordingly, start preparing the content.

You can use data, pictures, Graphics. Everyone consumes data communication in a different way.

Some people like to see words like in Powerpoint Points. But some people like to see pictures, some people like to see videos, some people like to see data analysis.

So, I want all of you to First understand the audience, the kind of pulse you need, and then prepare your public speaking content according to that.

So that it makes it super impactful. Once you prepare the content, then start practicing and rehearsing, I would suggest if you are a newbie stand in front of a mirror and start practicing your speech, especially there's a time. Then you gotta also time yourself and make sure you are not speaking too much or too little, keep memorizing and practicing every day.

Remember keywords that you don't want to forget, there's nothing wrong in even having a cheat sheet in your hand just in case for any last-minute worries that you have.And you can also rehearse in front of a family or a friend or someone that you can trust, just so you can get feedback.

Once you've rehearsed with the kind of data that you prepared, you are now all ready to get going with your public speaking event, the D-Day.

Now let's talk about what do you do on D-Day? Delivering a good public speaking content is definitely an art, you can learn the science and improve but the more and more you practice, the more better you become.

So how do you do this especially when you're a novice.

I think the first thing you should do is have a lot of eye contact even if you talking 200 people, when you look in one place, look at one person's eye.

Speak to people looking at their eye because then you directly communicating with them and they will connect back with you.

You got to use a lot of energy, a lot of passion, talk from your heart, use your hand gestures to make an impact.

One of the simple ways of making an impact is using silence as well.

Do you know?

Can you all listen to me?

This five minutes silence that I took, pause.

Will it make an impact?

Sometimes you can use silence to make an impact.

Or you can have a physical gesture to make an impact.

For example, you want to talk about how people are wasting money, bring some sheets of paper, tear it in front of them and throw it, that will make an impact because your purpose is in a very short time, you want to be able to gather the audience attention to you, you want to communicate your message, you want to convince them what you're saying is the right thing.

Galvanized their interest.

So keep it engaging, ask questions to the audience. Ask them to say things like do you agree with me? or you don't agree with me? What's your favorite

person you want to speak to today or something like that in? Ask them questions, Get them two way engaging.

They will love it.

Now, you may get nervous and you may try, you may feel, I may forget my lines.

That's when having a piece of paper in your hand, is not a bad thing.

It can help you.

If you don't remember, nothing wrong in referring to a piece of paper.

It's better than standing there like a lost person.

So this is how you can prepare, rehearse and deliver a great public speech.

I hope all of you enjoyed watching this video on how to be a top-class public speaker.
