The ability to speak publicly is a vital tool for any professional. Your success depends on your ability to share about and sell your business, your team, and your product to a multitude of different audiences, many times over.

Many professionals give little attention to this essential skill. Though you may be a wealth of information about your business through and through, without the ability to communicate it, you are only holding yourself and your business back from reaching its maximum success.

When you cannot get information across effectively, it creates an obstacle to inspiring, informing, and exciting your audience.

Public Speaking Mistakes Many Professionals Make
* Lack of eye contact – failing to maintain meaningful, sustained eye contact with the audience.
* Distracting mannerisms – fidgeting with things.
* Not rehearsing – talking in circles and jumping around throughout the speech.
* Data dumping – sharing too many facts and not valuable enough take away information.
* Lack of pauses – allowing powerful points within your speech to set in with the audience and create an emotional attachment to your message
* Not crafting a powerful story- not having a personal connection with the audience through your storytelling.
* Reading from your slides – spending more time reading and looking at slides or notes.

When you cannot get information across effectively, it creates an obstacle to inspiring, informing, and exciting your audience.

Craft a powerful story to create emotion and build trust with each individual you share it with along your journey.
