If a speaker can create an emotional bond with an audience they can sway opinions, bring about change, elevate a business and inspire great things.
Unfortunately, most people who speak to, or on behalf of, their organisation:
- focus everything on providing facts
- struggle to create a real connection with their audience
- don’t realise that audience empathy comes from sharing vulnerability
- often fear public speaking, which can undermine their confidence and believability.
Not even the world’s most natural, accomplished and persuasive public speakers like Winston Churchill and Barack Obama became great orators by simply jumping up to the podium. They needed to learn and practice the right techniques first.
With the right tools, techniques and training anyone in your team can become a great public speaker, too. Whether it’s talking to their team at work or before an audience of thousands.
