In this first chapter, Getting it right, we focus on putting yourself in the right frame of mind to prepare for creating a compelling speech and delivering it like a professional.
You will start with some confidence-boosting tips and exercises, set up the parameters of your remarks, and outline your goals and topic.
You will learn that giving a speech involves much more than writing a speech and then talking in front of a group. And that is good news for you. Because that means you can adjust things needed to ensure success. You are not at the mercy of others as much as you may dread to think.
The better you prepare, the better your chances of impressing your audience. And that is what this course is all about. The proper preparation will boost your confidence as you refine your public speaking skills.
Video yourself explaining in one-two minutes:
1. Why are you taking this course
2. The public speaking problems you want to fix
3. Describe a scene you imagine where the audience loves your presentation
TIP: Do not write it down or try to memorize it.
But time yourself and keep it under 2:00. Once you can do that. Record your practice.
