12 Sep 7 Public Speaking Tips for Small Business Owners
Public speaking, also known as oratory or oration, is the process or act of performing a speech to a live audience. For small business owners, public speaking is a skill that is needed to advance the business and create more opportunities for growth. Small business owners who have poor public speaking skills tend to often have a poor reputation or impression on their investors and or customers alike. It becomes a sign of a lack of confidence, and thus they can end up losing substantial business contracts for their brands.
Below are some strategies to consider to become a better public speaker.
- Plan appropriately.
- Practice your stance.
- Engage with your audience.
- Pay attention to body language.
- Think positively.
- Cope with your nerves.
- Watch recordings of your speeches
