Practical Advice to Help You in Any Situation

The Art of Public Speaking, though rooted in rich history, is packed with practical advice. Here are just three of the tips you’ll find:

• Speak from personal knowledge: Use personal experiences to allow your audience to better connect with you. In polite conversation, talking about yourself is frowned upon; in public speaking, it’s essential.

• Organise your facts into a story: When drafting a speech, find the underlying stories in your topic and organise your information around these stories. You’ll find it easier to remember your speech, and your audience will engage more with your message.

• Weave familiar references into your speech: Using familiar quotations when addressing your audience can establish a common ground. They may not be your words but, when used sparingly, they can infuse your speech with added power.
