Proven Tips To Boost Your Public Speaking And Presentation Skills (Part 29)

August 8, 2008

Yesterday night, I paid a visit to one of the Clubs I am mentoring, Nee Soon East Toastmasters Club. This meeting is the second meeting organized by the newly installed Executive Committee. I must say that their commitment and cohesive was evident, looking from the way they support and help each other out. While most of them are young adults and new Toastmasters, I’ve no doubt that, with their stalwart hearts and relentless earnestness, this team will carry the Club through to greater heights.

The meeting had already indicated clues that this Club will get better. We got to witness quality speeches by eagar speakers who book their slots sometime back. At the same time, the speakers were also humble enough to take feedback in their stride.

On the note of sharing improvement tips, here are some of them relevant to last night’s presentations:

1. If you want people to remember something about you better, you can help us link yourself or your name to someone famous.

2. Build credibility by showing us that you have prepared your speeches.

3. There is a difference between showing off your talents and attempting to teach the audience a concept. Choose your intention and craft out your structure smoothly.
