This is a new feature segment that I hope you’ll find useful. In an effort to improve my own speaking and presenting stills, I’m always on the hunt for new techniques, tips, ideas and insights – so I follow quite a few different industry blogs. As soon as there are 5 good, solid articles I believe you’ll get a value out of, they will be posted under Closing Remarks. My hope is to find a few every week, but I guess we’ll find out how good my search skills are :).
If you have any blogs or posts you’d like to share or if you have a speaking blog yourself, please comment below and I’ll add you to the roster. However, for this week here are the top 5 speaking articles:
5 Biggest Mistakes CEOs make in speaking – Decker Blog
Three Ways to Get The Creative Juices Flowing – Janice Tomich
Sell Your Ideas Like a Motivational Speaker – Steve Shapiro
Things That Can Go Wrong During a Speech and What To Do About Them – The Accidental Communicator
Hope you enjoy the read! I really liked the idea of weaving credibility stories and anecdotes into your speech to inspire trust, as Steve Shapiro recommends.
