Public Speaking Tip #6

Just do your job.do your job

When people say they are afraid of public speaking, what they commonly mean is that they are afraid of being embarrassed in front of a group. That’s completely understandable. Nobody enjoys feeling silly or being thought of as a fool.

Something I learned almost 30 years ago in Dale Carnegie Public Speaking was the idea that “What the audience is thinking about you is none of your business.” This takes a moment to digest, but realize that if you are on stage, you are there for a reason. You have a job to do and the more you worry about what is going in everyone else’s head, the less you are able to focus on doing your job. The audience is there to be educated, entertained, informed, amazed, or whatever you job is. Just do your job and stop worrying about what they are thinking.

What makes people nervous is the thought that the audience is going to criticize every word they say. Unless you are a politician, the audience is usually there to support you and they want you do well. They want you to be the expert that you are. They want you to do your job, so just get up there and do it. You will be great!

“So, what if I make a mistake?” Just keep on truckin’. Keep doing your job. It’s OK and the audience will support you as long as you keep doing your job. Mistakes will happen and it’s how you handle the mistakes with grace and poise that will have the audience sending you positive energy. I’ve seen many presenters lose their notes, have technology glitches, or break down in tears to the point where they can’t even speak. The audience was always there with warm applause and cheers of support…as long as they pulled it together and did their job.

So, stop worrying about what is going in their heads and keep yours together. You have a job to do and you will be great. Just do it!

Presenting and Facilitating?

What does a professional presenter and facilitator do?

These are really two different functions that can be used by businesses or organizations depending on the need. Let’s take a closer look.

Professional PresentersScience_Backed_Tips_for_Public_Speaking

A professional presenter is hired to speak on a particular topic that would be of interest to a particular audience. The presenter can be, but doesn’t need to be, an expert on the topic to be presented. He or she is simply hired to present the material. Hiring a presenter is a good choice when a company wants to introduce new material, processes, or culture to an organization and wants it to be presented professionally.

This works well if the company wants the material to have the feel of coming from an outside source or third party. It’s also a good idea when the company wants a trained public speaker to break down the material in a logical fashion for the group to integrate step-by-step. Sometimes the company wants a presenter who has a quick wit or sense of humor to entertain the troops, as is often a good idea when introducing major changes.

A professional presenter can take any material a company wants to have announced or introduced to the group and create all the visual aids that would enhance the topic, such as handouts and slideshows.

Let’s assume that a business or organization needs to present a difficult topic and nobody in the company has the public speaking confidence or time to invest in presenting this to the group. Hiring a professional presenter would be a good idea.

Professional Facilitatorsmeetings

A professional meeting facilitator is hired to manage an event such as a meeting, workshop, or panel discussion. This would be helpful in several situations:

  • When a group has important issues that must be resolved and there are high emotions surrounding it. A facilitator can act as outside arbitration or referee to prevent hurt feelings.
  • Facilitating a panel discussion is often best handled by a facilitator who has a background in knowing how to keep the discussion moving smoothly, how to cut off long-winded speakers, and how to redirect inappropriate questions.
  • A professional facilitator can also play the ‘dummy’ at certain times to ask the questions that members may be too shy to ask. These can even be arranged in advance by leadership.
  • Sometimes a facilitator can be hired to hold a meeting using strict Robert’s Rules of Order, if the situation demands, such as a board meeting or corporate vote.

There are many occasions when an organization would want to use an outside source to present or facilitate at an event.
