Of the many skills a successful member of Team Zealous United Inc. should develop, public speaking is one of the most important. Whether it consists of one or 1,000, the ability to grab an audience’s attention, keep it, and present ideas compellingly enough to encourage action will propel a career forward.
We understand that giving speeches can be nerve-wracking experiences even for practiced speakers though, so we offer these tips through our Zealous United Inc. training program. For instance, one of the best ways to win a group of listeners over is to start a presentation with a joke. We might look up some good zingers before our talk, or borrow some material from a favorite comedian. Some of us have even found classes where we could learn some stand-up or improv skills.
Then, to make sure our main points are memorable and emotionally intriguing, we practice our storytelling abilities. Narrative is one of the oldest tools humans have for conveying information, and this time-honored strategy is just as effective today as it ever was. The most important point to remember when it comes to telling a tale is to make sure we are clear on the point we’re trying to make. Once we have this, it’s much easier to craft a story that will support our premise and have the most emotional impact.
