On this episode of Youpreneur FM, I'm giving you the only quick start guide to public speaking you need. Whether you want to be a better speaker or you're just getting started it's all here on today's show.

We'll be talking about how and when to use slides and other visual aides effectively, how to properly give your speech including how to use eye contact and your voice for the best possible delivery and my simple yet effective breathing strategies for coping with stage fright.

Even if you're an experienced speaker with keynotes under your belt you'll want to tune in - and that goes double if you're new to public speaking!

Essential Learning Points From This Episode:

  • When should you turn down speaking opportunities?
  • What are the two most important parts of any speech?
  • Is it ever a good idea to use a podium?
  • What are the right and wrong ways to deal with stage fright?
