Years ago, I was terrified of public speaking. My public speaking skills were null or, if possible, below zero. Whenever I’d speak to a crowd, I’d fumble over my words, forget what I was trying to say, or just give up. I’d stand behind the podium with sweaty hands and armpits. Public speaking wasn’t for me.
Until it was.
How you present yourself in a public speaking situation can determine whether or not people want to do business with you. Your eloquence, or lack of it, may tell others that you don’t know what you’re doing, you’re not prepared, or that you don’t care.
None of those things are true about you. That’s why you’re always trying to develop yourself and grow your skills.
Maybe you’re like me. Maybe your public speaking skills need to be worked on.
