How to Set Goals to Become a Better Public Speaker in 2018

As we enter a new year, this is the time to set goals and see them through. At Talk Boutique, we believe that everyone has a story to tell and this is why we strongly believe that becoming a better public speaker should be one of your goals.

Here are some tips for ways that you can become a better public speaker.

Research Speaking Opportunities

If speaking on a stage is one of your New Year’s resolutions for 2018 we recommend researching opportunities in your area. Seek out events hosted by the Rotary Club or TEDx; the smaller ones are always looking for speakers. Join a local speaking club like Toastmasters, momondays or a local meetup group. The more you put yourself out there, the more comfortable you will be speaking in front of strangers.

Learn From Others

Watching others speak can help you understand what works and what doesn’t. We recommend watching TED Talks or attending events in your area so that you can learn from others. Every few months the Talk Boutique team hosts a Speaker Salon where we showcase our talented roster of speakers. This gives them exposure but also allows them to practice their talk in a room full of strangers. It takes the speakers out of the comfort zone while allowing them to gain experience. We would love for you to attend our upcoming Salon!

Hire a Speaker Coach

One of the best things you could do to become a better public speaker is to hire a speaker coach. Whether you are a professional speaker (yes, they need a coach too) or is someone who is starting from scratch, there are many benefits from having one-on-one personal sessions. You are more likely to see results faster when working with someone who is able to provide regular feedback. These meetings can be customized to your goals and needs to ensure that you reach your full potential.

Get in Touch!

At Talk Boutique, it is our goal to help make you the best public speaker you are capable of. We will help you develop your talk, improve your stage presence and give feedback on your presentation skills. If you are interested in learning how we can work together, please reach out. We look forward to working with you!
