Get Rid of Distraction

Successful public speaking correlates so much with good preparation. Always be well prepared when you enter a stage and talk to an audience. A small but important part of this preparation is to get rid of any potential distraction for your audience. My goal is to prevent any form of visual or auditory distraction. Coins or keys that make jingling sounds in my pocket? No way. Expansive bracelets or earrings, if I were a woman? No way. And that conference name tag flying around in front of my chest? Definitely no way!

Getting ready for action

Great delivery in public speaking does not only depend on your eye contact, your body language or your voice. Great delivery also depends on how you use your stage, how you handle your tech and how you prepare your room. As always, good preparation is the secret ingredient for success.

Public Speaking is Meditation

It took me years and years to finally be… present… on stage. My thoughts used to go wild during my speeches: Did you prepare well? What if this humorous line doesn’t work? What will they think? Why did you have to say that? My thoughts used to get stuck in the past and in the future. But the magic of #publicspeaking happens in the now. Today, I am 100% present, always. You speak in public for one sole purpose: to make your audience a present. But how can you make someone a present, if your are not present yourself? Apart from that, being present on stage offers three big benefits, which your audience will appreciate tremendously.
