In most cases, people are wary of the speakers. They don't understand why they need to spend time on you and your message. To really interest the audience, there is little interesting material, you also need to be able to start a speech correctly. And this cannot be done without high-quality training.

Step 1

Study your topic carefully. Take four sheets of paper and head them: "What must be said?", "What else would be useful to say?", "What can be mentioned in passing?", "What should be kept silent?" All thoughts that come to mind about the upcoming speech, attach to one of the categories. This will help you structure all of your content and pick the most interesting facts to start with.

Step 2

Define goals and objectives. Answer clearly to yourself the questions: "What do I want to get as a result of the speech?", "How to understand that the goal has been achieved?", "How quickly should the goal be achieved?"

Step 3

Study your audience. It is impossible to achieve success without understanding who is sitting in the audience and listening to your speech. The smaller the audience, the more complete the information about it should be. Everything is important: composition, competence, interests and needs, attitude towards you, questions that may be asked.

Step 4

Prepare visual materials and techniques with which you will demonstrate all this. Take the time to check all outlets, extension cords and the compatibility of various devices. There is nothing more destructive to a successful performance than the hassle at the beginning.

Step 5

Prepare your performance venue and provide clean drinking water. Think about your look in advance. Target your audience, you have to inspire trust and a sense of “your person” without saying a word.

Step 6

The tie is very important. It should be such that the audience would certainly want to sit out until the end of your speech.

Step 7

Greet the audience, remind who you are, why and why you are standing in front of them. Immediately tell how long you intend to occupy the attention of the public. This will allow the audience to relax.

Step 8

There are several ways to grab attention. Joke according to the moment, and prepare the joke in advance. No impromptu.

Step 9

Surprise. To do this, cite a paradoxical fact at the beginning of your speech and explain how it relates to the topic of your speech.

Step 10

Scare. Describe the situation and problem facing humanity, and then spontaneously communicate how you can save the world with the product you are about to share.

Step 11

Make me think. Ask the audience a few questions, ask them to answer them, and write these questions on the chalkboard. Then start answering the questions yourself. During your speech, compare your presentation several times with the opinions of people in the audience.

Step 12

Don't be afraid of excitement. Even professional actors feel jittery before a performance. But they know how to deal with it.

Step 13

Reduce hand tremors by firmly squeezing your thumb and forefinger on both hands alternately.

Step 14

If the fear of performing reaches a state of panic, try grabbing your nose twenty-five times, alternating between your right and left hands. The effect is guaranteed for the next 25-30 minutes. Do it behind the scenes, of course.
