HOW to Become a Better Speaker – 5 Questions To Ask Before Preparing A Speech

Questions

DO A LOT OF THINKING WORK (asking yourself questions) BEFORE YOUR START WRITING YOUR SPEECHES, TALKS OR PRESENTATIONS.
Depending on the nature of your presentation, there are hundreds of questions you might ask yourself before getting started.Here is the deal though, the question should never be ‘I am good enough?’ BUT:1. What’s the point of my presentation/talk/speech?

2. What is the problem my audience has for which my services/products are the solution?

3. How can my audience best apply my content?

4. How can I present my content so they remember it best?

5. In one sentence, what is my speech about?

I will break those questions down for you over the next couple of weeks. For now, why don’t you grab your special speaking notebook and start creating.

Also, when listening to other speakers keep those questions in mind – is it easy to summarise what they are speaking about? Do they tell you how to best apply the content? etc. The more you tune in and observe other speakers the faster and better you will be able to create your own content.
