The art of act which can represent one topic and one view to more than two people, considered as Public Speaking. The audience can be large or small and a single person is going to address them, making a point regarding the topic, is the art of it.
Public Speaking, is that always needs to be performed on the stage in front of hundreds or millions of people?
I believe every conversation out of your house in a public place within any community, also a part of public speaking. Less or more we perform art of Public speaking in daily life during workplace meetings ,marriage functions, or any public place like Airport, Public transport, any club house and many more.
Have you ever noticed you’re trained by early age? How much to speak, when to speak in a public ceremony or function in the presence of family members among other families? We are trained from childhood. Remember how many times your parents, especially your mother have warned a lot about it? Actually we all are trained to speak in a certain manner in the public.
Then when its come to Public Speaking before large audience, most of us get nervous. Why?
Because : That stage is going to give a voice and guidance related to social,personal, political and human stories.You’re going to inspire innovation for changes in the society and personal life. The stage shares information, that’s why a speaker and audience together are focused on the topic. Above all you earned here name fame and also success regarding your passion, skills and hard work.You become recognized.
This is why, in a minimum crowd when we speak to people that must be encouraged.Those are topic based or just gossip or something. But how you can continue long half an hour in discussion also will help you to be fearless during speaking in a large group.Uneasiness is a limitation to take control of the stage.Therefore we all are trained little not knowing that any kind of discussion in public,a form of public speaking.
Here, I want to add another point. Commenting on social media is also part of public speaking. Commenting on a timeline post should be related to the post. Comment and post topic both should be connected.Recently commenting has turned into a type of trolling or abusing.
Social media etiquettes have been lost between public and personal speaking. Communication is also public speaking when it is at Public forum.
Purpose of Public Speaking is conveying how to take us towards development. The goal of any speaker and audience is similar.Finding a better solution. Any kind of situation, in any section of the society public speaking get together speaker and audience for progressive guidelines.You and audience together are strangers, though topic or issue are not.
Be in control
Be yourself. You know the subject you are going to speak on.When you are all set to go on stage, you are already half done. Knowing the subject will help you to know about the audience even before they say you hello. So be at ease and let go off excitement. Research whatever you require. Do not practice like a student before the final day. Get good sleep and keep calm.
Pick up who you are
Pick up master points. Now prepare and focus on those for the stage. An additional thing you need from humor.Don’t appear much serious. So be natural.Losing words or dropping a note, is not an issue at all. Keep hand notes ready. Never be repeated.Do not talk too much of personal life that sounds fake. Be original.
Equipment you must carry

Being with a beginning
Greets Public with warm voice.Do not shout or jump. Ask the audience about arrangements, if they’re comfortable.Wish them to find the answer for what they’re here today.Representing subject on behalf of it, is your job. And start presentation keeping away stress,what might go wrong.
Along with plenty of information experiences and guidance you wanted to be there.So you are. Feel the joy being there.Automatically your confidence will be sharp. Don’t try,let that happen.Your voice is filling the auditorium, concentrate on the topic. Stand facing audience. Don’t walk on the stage too often. Go on. Be you.Your skill would help you completely. Trust your skill.
Sometimes ago I watched two public speaking appearances. Both were women speakers.One of them in fancy clothes was looking just like at the stage of fashion parade.More than speech its her exposed body in fancy dress was speaking.
Second speaker starts with personal losses like death serially was in black dress totally.Within minutes I start to feel depressed. Listening to her death stories continuously and I left.
I think many have such experiences.Therefore right choosing of pleasant dress soft in color and normal makeup is important.
For men preferable official looks than a teenager or bodybuilder.Please don’t use fancy pants and shirt.
Between you and audience connectivity is the subject you are speaking for. Too much personal information can give a bit of irritation and fake impressions. Some speakers go on and on about personal life about accident death etc.
Please trust me people dislike to be depressed. Two or three lines or twice you may speak. Always remember the best tool for connecting people is topic,you’re going to speak.
Ask the audience what they’re looking for? What type of troubles they’re facing?Question them once and twice. We’re together to find a solution for a kind of problem in our lives.That is the best positive way to take control over the stage as Public Speaker.
A direction is the outcome of any Public Speaking. When a speaker is about to finish his or her speech, it’s important concluding by clear direction among the audience. Letting them know there is a new way out of their personal journey now onwards.
