5 mistakes people make on stage

I have often noticed people going on stage and doing the same thing all over again not realizing that sometimes just tiny things to their way of presenting themselves can give an amazing outcome.  I am in the process of learning a lot although I have been a radio presenter for over 10 years now. So remember, you will NEVER be perfect unless you leave lots of room in your mind to grow. Ok on to the tiny mistakes. Not knowing your subject This is NOT acceptable :) You wouldn’t want to hear about how planes fly from a person who hasn’t read anything about planes, would you? Lack of passion This is the “battery” that without any speech would be totally dead Slow as a snail Remember to note down your speech in keywords, do not write the whole 20 pages. Audience will sleep :) Know your audience This is my favorite, always try to strike a conversation to the audience on the day of your speech. This will make it easier for you and often clears the air a bit. Failing to breath Well if you don’t breath, you surely will die but your speech will be long dead before that. So be careful and remember to breath properly. Any more tips you got? Do share...

The fear of public speaking

There are lots of various reasons why people would be afraid of standing up in public and talking. I for one am one of those that was very shy when I was young. Not that I am totally shameless now but I feel that it’s all about practice. I remember my younger days when I was in the American School in Norway in fifth grade and the speech teacher made me talk about some wierd old made up fruit, I remember the butterflies in my stomach and that feeling I can still feel when I close my eyes. So what makes a speaker, Good? The difference between a good and a bad speaker is that the good speaker always has done his “homework”, and knows his content. If a speaker is unaware of his subject then surely he will be confused and will NOT manage himself or herself on stage. So I would say if you are to speak about a certain topic, don’t think about where you are giving the speech, just KNOW your subject. Just think, do you think all those that are listening to you would have the guts to be where you are standing? :) Speaking is an art, learn the basics and enjoy while you are at it, no one I have heard of has ever passed away on stage because of stage fright....
