In this article, I want to share with you the five steps into becoming a confident speaker. First is the letter S, which is Stance. How is your stance on stage? Where do you need to be, and how do you need to present yourself from stage? Secondly is T – Tonality. There are three types of tones you should use from stage. It’s very important that you use all three of them while presenting. When I talk from stage, such as live events, Zoom meetings, webinars, or boardroom meetings, it is important to make sure that you are using all forms of tonality.
Third, is E – Eye Contact. As a speaker, how long is it appropriate to hold eye contact with people and how often you should do that depending on the amount of people you’re presenting to. The next one is P-Posture. When I mean posture, you may think that it is about how we stand. However, posture is about how do you hold that in certain areas from the stage, even on video, what is your posture and where are you leaving marks? Sometimes, or even all the time, when you’re on stage, when you’re standing in a certain position, there’s a certain posture you must hold depending on where you are on stage.
The very last one of my steps program is S, which is your State and making sure that you’re in the correct state to present what you are going to present to your audiences. These are my five steps: it’s Stance, it’s Tonality, it’s Eye Contact, it’s Posture, and it’s State.
I share these with all of my attendees at my Grow Your Speaking Biz event, which I’m really excited about holding here on the Gold Coast in August. You can either attend the live event with limited numbers or you can attend the live event virtually.
This is not a webinar, this is not a Zoom meeting, this is you attending a live event through virtual technology.
What I do with these five steps is I break them down for you, share with you the three types of tonality you need to be 5 S.T.E.P.S. to being a confident speaking on stage, what are the four postures you need to be using, and how to design your state. We delve deeper into these five steps. If you cover off these five steps as a speaker, your audiences will love you. You will get them to take action to do further work with you in the future.
