Delivering a speech is a lot like having a conversation. We speak to our friends and family daily, and keynote speaking is simply sharing those conversations on a larger scale and can be a great opportunity for you and your business.
When preparing to deliver a keynote speech, there are some tips that can help you.
- Understand your audience. It is vital for any public speaker to know who your audience is so that you can build a connection with your listeners and set the tone for the entire event. You should try to tailor your speech to your listeners needs and interests to better engage them.
- Think about the story you want to tell. Storytelling is a great way to connect with your audience. Personal experiences that your listeners can relate to can help engage your audience. Even if you don’t have personal experiences, you may be able to share experiences of someone you know.
- Energize and enhance your presentations. During group presentations, virtual or in-person, a speaker should deliver content that is engaging and valuable, while connecting with the audience. Molly informs and demonstrates how to exhibit these characteristics during presentations.
