Presenting, public speaking and pitching are a must for your success not only in business but also life in general. There are particular strategies, skills, techniques that help propel you out of your shyness, worry, fear, whatever it is that's holding you back to achieve.
Our voice is a powerful means of communication. How we articulate sounds, our pitch, tone, pace, use of pause, emphasis and inflection all communicate many cues as to who we are, where we come from and even what our intentions are. We can project our power, or perhaps lack of it, through our voice and those who listen to us can make judgements about many aspects of our life and whether they are ‘buying in’ to what we are saying.
Our speech and communicating effectively is a life- long skill. We build our confidence when we correctly articulate sounds, pronounce words and to speak with an effective voice that is heard clearly, is interesting to listen to and above all wins us what we are seeking.
Does the thought of not being heard worry or frustrate you? There are ways and means to solve this problem, don't be afraid to ask for help as it sometimes can be as simple as tweaking one or two things in either your preparation or delivery. Just ask!
