1. Embrace the nerves
Even the most accomplished public speakers experience nerves; it’s how they deal with those nerves that defines a good public speaker. Mr Crofts encourages people to embrace the nerves and use the adrenaline rush to deliver a phenomenal performance.
2. Know the audience
The best speakers cater to the audience. A speech should be tailored to the listeners. Mr Crofts urges speakers to learn as much about the audience as possible and consider the message and who it is intended for.
Every speech should have a structure with an introduction, short story, presentation, close/conclusion and rehash. Having a set structure creates a framework for the speech. Mr Crofts argues that when preparing, the speaker should identify the topic, general purpose, specific purpose, central idea, and main points in order to deliver the most effective speech.
4. Let Your Personality Come Through
Some people freeze under the spotlight and can become quite robotic, failing to let any personality shine through or engage the audience. Mr Crofts urges speakers to be themselves, not to read everything from a card, make eye contact with the audience, smile, and let their personality shine through.
5. Grab Attention
Mr Crofts aims to start and end every speech with an interesting anecdote, quote or statistic to grab the attention of the audience. “Grabbing people’s attention at the outset is vital to get the audience to go with you on the journey, but it's also imperative to do this at the end to ensure that the audience will remember what's been said,” said Mr Crofts.
At Monarch Movements, they frequently run educational workshops and seminars to help their staff and contractors hone their public speaking skills.
