Dr Gregory Brammer
Dr. Gregory Brammer has been a keynote speaker for many years, delivering lectures and presentations on a wide range of subjects, including emergency medical treatment and drug and alcohol prevention in schools. This has allowed him to develop into a confident public speaker who is able to deliver information clearly and in a manner that keeps audiences engaged. This is something that people who are new to public speaking often struggle with, so consider the following tips if you want to improve.
While it is not a good idea to memorize all of your presentation, as this could lead on the resulting speech sounding too rigid to be engaging, it is important that you know the direction that you presentation is going to take. Create a beginning and end point, working on the middle section to ensure it all builds up to your conclusion.
Take It Slow
New public speakers often make the mistake of rushing straight into their presentations as soon as they hit the stage, which leads to them speaking uncomfortably and making more errors than they otherwise would. When you are called on to give your speech, take a moment to drink in your surroundings and start talking when you’re ready.
Focusing On Mistakes
Even the most experienced public speakers, like Dr. Gregory Brammer, make the occasional mistake. This is to be expected and nobody is going to think less of you for a minor verbal flub. However, if you start focusing on nothing but your mistake it is likely that you will start making more as you lose focus on your presentation.
