The fear of public speaking is known as glossophobia and affects nearly 73% of the general population. In fact, it’s more common to fear public speaking than death, which means that many people would rather be in the casket than delivering the eulogy. At Nineteen88 Strategies LLC, we can help with this. Not only will a public speaking coach help you overcome a fear of speaking, but you’ll also learn about other valuable aspects of addressing an audience.
Know how to identify your message
There are few things in life that are more frustrating than listening to a speaker for 30 minutes to an hour and not knowing what the point of their talk was. It can feel like you’ve wasted your time and not benefited from it. With help from our team, you’ll learn how to avoid being on the opposite end of this when you’re the one delivering a speech. You can identify your message right away and engage an entire audience. This not only makes for a more effective speech, but you can drive home your point quickly and effectively without beating around the bush.
Build trust with your audience
When you’re able to deliver an effective speech, you’ll build trust with your audience as an expert in your field. This will open other avenues and opportunities for you within your field. Whether you’re looking to build your business by selling a product or raise awareness about an issue, you can have a large impact on others within your field by gaining a reputation as a trusted voice.
Learn how to sell without selling
Generally speaking, people don’t like to be sold to. This is true when we’re walking on the streets, scrolling through social media, and even when listening to the keynote speech at a conference. You can sell your product or services when delivering a speech without ever giving your pitch. Confidence and knowledge go a long way to effectively selling and you can do this by gaining the trust of your audience. As you confidently address an audience, they’ll want to know more about you and what you do.
Add value to your business
The better you can present yourself, the better you’ll represent your business. Think of it this way, you can have the best t-shirts in the business, but if you can’t confidently speak to others in your industry or customers about why they’re the best, nobody will believe you. Your credibility will go down and people won’t want to work with you. Confidence goes a long way to adding value to your products and services as you increase your credibility.
Increase your confidence
Confidence is a fight that many people feel like they’re losing any time they deliver a speech. With the help of our coaching, you can build your confidence in your ability to speak publicly. This confidence doesn’t go unnoticed as those you’re addressing will be more attentive and engage in what you have to say.
