It is one of life’s most frequently asked questions, “why is public speaking important?” swiftly followed by, “how do I improve my public speaking?” Indeed, such a worry is public speaking for the majority of people, that it is rated as being in the top two or three fears worldwide.
But important it is – on so many levels. For students to CEOs, being able to deliver an effective speech or even conversation in the public arena can be the difference to success or failure. Whether trying to get that place to study, promote your business, seal that deal or simply to impress a partner in a bar; having confidence in your public self is paramount.
As with most things in life, public speaking is nothing more than selling yourself. In job interviews for example, you are mostly there to convince your potential employer of your worth in their company. They have short listed the candidates through the resume submission process. Now it is a head to head battle as to who can present most effectively.
It is an art that once learnt; the issue won’t so much be; “Why is public speaking important?” But more; “How can I get the opportunity to perform?” Dedicated motivational coaches, structured courses and self-help guides can help you improve these talents.
Once you have picked up the basics, you should try to put yourself in positions where public speaking is necessary as often as possible. As with most skills, they are only enhanced by repetition. Joining an amateur dramatic organization could reap rich rewards; managing to address a room full of strangers, expecting to be entertained, will make meeting and greeting potential investors a walk in the park.
So, why is public speaking important as you journey through life? Simply because it is your opportunity to get what you want from life.
