Sep 6, 2008
How would you like to be able to guarantee that you could get any audience to love you? Of all the public speaking tips this one will be right up there at the top of the pile!

By discovering a few, easy to apply techniques, you will quickly be able to guarantee that even the most difficult audience will rate you as one of the most accomplished public speakers that the have ever heard. By gaining a thorough understanding of what your audience is looking for even before you step out on stage, you will already be in a position to guarantee that that you will make a positive connection with them from the very start.

So what should you do to make any audience love you?

Step 1.

The most important place to start is understanding exactly what your audience wants - and expects - to hear. Once you know what topic you will be speaking on, this is easily discovered from your initial research. It really isn't cheating to go and ask a few people who have an interest in the subject what questions they would like answered or what aspect is most important to them. Browse through the search engines or borrow books on the subject from your local library - you'll soon get an idea of what is in your audience's minds.

Step 2.

Now you must concentrate on building an easy rapport with your audience. The best - and easiest - way is simply to remember to smile and make eye contact throughout your delivery. You are a warm and friendly person, so make an effort to let your audience know that too! One very important tip that is overlooked by so many public speakers is to be in the room or auditorium whilst their audience is arriving. This gives you the chance to greet a few people personally and will ensure that you are far more memorable than other speakers. Your audience will also feel that they already know and like you before you are formally introduced on stage.

Step 3.

Do make sure that the language you use in your speech is appropriate to your audience. Use words that relate to the topic in hand but don't overdo the jargon - it may be beyond your audience's expertise and mark you out as being too-clever-by-half!

Step 4.

Always deliver benefits to the audience. Build your speech for their satisfaction, not yours. Make sure that you address their wants - whether that may be to be informed, entertained, educated, emotionally or spiritually fulfilled or to be shown how to gain some financial or health advantage. Provide a solution to a problem they may have and they will love you for it.

And the greatest of all public speaking tips?

Step 5.

Relax and appear confident on stage.

It is a basic truth that your audience will mirror the emotion you are projecting on stage, so if you are embarrassed, uneasy or hesitant in your manner, they will be too. But If you are at ease, then your audience will be at ease also. However, if you are giving out signals that you are comfortable in their presence, have respect and affection for them and appreciate their attention, then they will sub-consciously return the compliment to you. They will feel warm and appreciative towards you, guaranteed!

By incorporating these public speaking tips into your speeches, you will swiftly find that making any audience fall in love with you is as easy as pie. It's a wonder that all public speakers don't benefit from using these simple and natural techniques but now that you have been given this knowledge, you will never be able to make the same mistake.
