Public Speaking - Become An Effective Public Speaker By Making Changes In How You Approach People

Being successful as a public speaker has a lot to do with how you present yourself to others and the impression they get from you when they first meet you in person. You can change some small things in your personality and change your entire life. Here are some ways to make these small changes that will ensure you become a more effective public speaker.

  • Always arrive early at your destination. Whether it is for a speaking engagement or other appointment, make sure to arrive about a half an hour before you need to be there. This will work well if you run into traffic or other unexpected emergencies, and also help you to feel confident that you do not need to rush to find where you are going. Once you arrive, you can read, write in a journal, make a phone call, or just sit and relax until it is time for you to join the group you will be speaking to that day.
  • Wear clothing that is professional and comfortable. Avoid all cotton clothes that become wrinkled when you are driving. Choose natural fabrics that breathe so you won't be wet with perspiration. Wool blends can work very well when you are traveling and speaking.
  • Look people in the eye when you meet them and when you are speaking. Looking over everyone's head will make you look like an amateur. Maintain eye contact for at least four or five seconds before looking at someone else. This will help you to connect with your audience to gain rapport with them.

Just making these small changes will have a huge impact in the way others perceive you in every aspect of your life. Becoming an effective public speaker will be much easier for you as well.
