Have you ever watched a speaker give the same presentation at a different event?
Maybe the speaker uses his speech repeatedly, adding more material and removing what seems dated. The difference between the first time a speech is presented to a repeat presentation is Fine Tuning and Polishing.
This part of rehearsing a presentation is what gives a professional speaker pizazz. A Coach and Trainer can transform the mediocre speaker into a fabulous professional level speaker through enhancing your public speaking strengths and deleting any weaknesses that lowers your level of excellence.
Speakers need to be coached and trained by a professional Voice Coach and Trainer face to face. Even the most seasoned speakers cannot determine where their presentations can soar with success or fail with surprise. What we think will easily impress an audience with humour, voice dynamics and platform mechanics may actually fall flat and ineffective.
The three most important areas for competency in public speaking are voice dynamic, platform mechanics and presentational style.
- Voice dynamics includes your use of volume, rate, confidence, tone, melody and friendliness.
- Platform mechanics includes your podium stance, posture, stage blocking, movement, set up and positioning.
- Presentational style includes your non verbal communication skills, gestures, eye contact, microphones, power point and visual aids.
When all of the above are fine tuned and polished, the speaker will become not only memorable but have the ability to change how an audience thinks and feels.
