YOU Don’t Do Public Speaking.


When asked, “Do YOU ever do any public speaking or deliver presentations?” the answer is often, “No.” Sometimes it’s “No-o-o-o-o! I would never speak in front of a group.”

Perhaps, it depends how you define the terms, “Public Speaking and Presentations.”

I remember my first Toastmaster meeting when one of the members told me, “Even if you never have an occasion to speak in front of a group, the ability to do so will greatly improve your one-on-one communication.”

The next day I found myself in front of three ladies delivering information about my Coffee Service business. Immediately, the words from that “Toastie” came to mind and I realized I was connecting with these prospects for my services well – very well! (I got the sale!)

Do any of the following apply to you?

You’ve been asked to:

  1. Give a speech.

  2. Make a presentation.

  3. Present an award.

  4. Receive an award.

  5. Give a toast.

  6. Give a eulogy.

  7. Lead a discussion.

  8. Introduce a speaker.

  9. Be a Master of Ceremonies.

  10. Speak at your place of worship.

  11. Deliver your Elevator Speech.

Perhaps, it’s your turn to:

  1. Lead a discussion.

  2. Give a sales presentation.

  3. Teach a lesson.

  4. Conduct a meeting.

  5. Give a eulogy.

  6. Deliver a toast.

  7. Tell a group who you are and what you do.

Maybe, you’ve been told:

  1. “If you have any ambitions of ‘climbing the corporate ladder’, you’ll have to make some presentations.”

  2. “If you’re ever going to be a leader, people expect you to be a good Public Speaker.”

  3. “You need Public Speaking/Presentation Coaching.”

  4. “Find a Presentation Skills Class or Public Speaking Workshop.”

Alternatively, you might:

  1. Have observed people in your organization who take and make Speaking Opportunities” receiving recognition, sometimes bonuses, and often promotions.

  2. Have attended networking events, social functions, and seminars and noticed people considered leaders and successful are better communicators; one-on-one and in front of groups.

My initial conversations with coaching clients often include verbiage like this:

  1. “I’m sick and tired of co-workers who don’t work as hard as I do and don’t contribute as much to the company, getting recognized and promoted because they are speaking. Most don’t do it well, but they are up there, and I’m not. Can you help me?”

  2. “I know I’ve lost advancement opportunities because I didn’t speak at meetings nor volunteer to give presentations when offered the opportunity.”

The research shows: Speaking Opportunities are Business, Career, and Leadership Opportunities!”
